Much denigrated in the 20th century, Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904) was one of the most celebrated academic painters of the 19th century and during his lifetime one of the great stars of French art.  He is now back in fashion and this is the first major exhibition of his work since the retrospective held the year of his death in 1904! His highly detailed and illusionist renderings of history notably Greek and Roman, but also of the period of Louis XIV, his Oriental harems and slave markets and sexy female nudes make for a most entertaining exhibition. They combine fascinating details of historical costume and architecture with all of the obsessions and hang-ups of the Victorian Age.

Place: Musée d’Orsay 75007. 

Métro: Solférino (line12) or Musée d’Orsay (RER C).

Time: 1:15 for 1:300 pm start.  Bring 11€ for ticket.
