gérôme at the getty






Jean-Léon Gérôme (May 11, 1824 – January 10, 1904) was a French painter and sculptor in the style now known as Academicism. The range of his oeuvre included historical painting, Greek mythology, Orientalism, portraits and other subjects, bringing the Academic painting tradition to an artistic climax.


"the Cockfight" 1846

"Napoleon and the Sphinx" 1862
It was long presumed that Napoleon Bonaparte was responsible for blowing off the Sphinx's nose with canon fire. However, there are sketches of the Sphinx missing a nose that date back from before Napoleon's time.
