Launch Slideshow

This year’s Orientalist Sale on 30 April presents no fewer than five paintings by Jean-Léon Gérôme, the artist considered among the greatest of all Orientalist painters. Gérôme’s own journeys to Egypt and Istanbul enriched his paintings of the region, and over some forty years as a professor at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, his vision influenced generations of successive Orientalists. The works in our sale offer an excellent opportunity to explore how Gérôme’s influence guided some of his most important pupils.
