Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824 - 1904) is a well-chosen title for this magnificent book about an artist who has survived a century of criticism for being far too academically inclined to get to the passion of painting. The writing for this book are excellent, with contributions not only by the three curators - Laurence des Cars, the chief curator and director of the France-Museum agency, Dominique de Font-Relaux of the Musée de Louvre, and Edouard Papet of the Musée d'Orsay - but further art history articles have been contributed by such fine writers as Guy Gogeval ('A.

An overview of Gérôme’s oeuvre from his sources of inspiration to his influences on others. The public perception of Jean-Léon Gérôme has changed greatly over the past decades. Long stigmatized as an emblem of sterile academicism, he is now considered one of the nineteenth century’s great image makers. This catalog highlights and analyzes his bountiful expression of a visual grammar that takes illusionist obsession to the limits of the bizarre and establishes a resonance with all visual arts, including prints, photography, and cinema. In particular, it will make it possible to propose new approaches to such diverse issues as Gérôme’s place in the French painting of his time, his theatrical conception of historical themes, his complex exoticism, his use of polychrome in sculpture, his role as a teacher, his relationship with historical models, how the figure of this artist galvanized the anti-academy clash at the end of the nineteenth century, and lastly, the singular American destiny of his works. The catalog sets out to explore, beyond the immediate seductive qualities and accessibility of Gérôme’s oeuvre, its double identity, both erudite and popular, which now renders it so precious to art historians and to the general public.
  • Although I would have been happier if this exhibition had managed to book a venue where I could have actually seen it, this catalogue is a nice consolation prize. Most of Gerome's best-known paintings and sculptures are well-reproduced, and the text is full of useful information. My only qualm has to do with a kind of sneering condescension that tends to creep into most, but not all of the contributing scholars's essays. I could only wonder why an art historian would want to write about an artist for whom they would seem to have so little respect. I missed Gerald Ackerman's more sober and balanced approach.

  • Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824 - 1904) is a well-chosen title for this magnificent book about an artist who has survived a century of criticism for being far too academically inclined to get to the passion of painting. This hefty volume serves as the catalogue for a traveling exhibition of the works of Gérôme - paintings, drawings, sculptures - by the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, an the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. Having had the privilege of visiting the exhibition at the Getty provides this reader with a great deal of respect for this volume. Not only are the reproductions of the vast number of paintings reproduced in exquisite color and the sculptures and drawings and informational notations or gestational ideas for the works included, but each work in this exhibition and the book is carefully documented, not only as to time and place of creation, but a solid provenance of each work together with an analysis of the background of the painting and the effect the painting ha one those who saw it first, on subsequent critics and artists, and a classification as to which period in Gérôme's substantial history it occupies.

    The writing for this book are excellent, with contributions not only by the three curators - Laurence des Cars, the chief curator and director of the France-Museum agency, Dominique de Font-Relaux of the Musée de Louvre, and Edouard Papet of the Musée d'Orsay - but further art history articles have been contributed by such fine writers as Guy Gogeval ('A Precise, Perverse Kind of Beauty'), 'Picturing Gérôme' by the three curators, Laurence des Cars ('Gérôme: Painter of Histories'), Scott C. Allan (Gérôme Before the Tribunal: The Painter's Early Reception'), François de Vergnette ("History according to Gérôme), Pierre-Lin Renié ('Gérôme: Working in the Era of Industrial Reproduction'), Mary G. Morton ('Gérôme in the Gilded Cage'), Dominique de Font-Relaux ('Gérôme andPhotography: Accurate Depictions of an Imagined World') Sophie Marariou and Charlotte Maury ('The Paradox of Realism: Gérôme in the Orient'), édouard Papet ('Father Polychrome": The Sculpture of Jean-Léon Gérôme'), Dominique Païni ('Painting the Moment Just Afterward, or, Gérôme as Film-maker'). The scope of approaches to the artist's work is thus introduced tot he potential buyer of this book. Yes there are many other books of images by this strange artist, but none approaches the complete survey of the gifts of one of the nineteenth century's great influences on art history.

    For the student of art this book is indispensable, not only for the topic of the named artist, but for the wealth of information about art in the past two hundred years. For the art collector or art lover this volume unveils works never seen before as well as all of the 'behind the scenes' inspirations that lead to the extraordinary output of Jean-Léon Gérôme. Grady Harp, September 10

  • An exhaustive study of the life, career and works of Jean-Leon Gerome. Beautifully illustrated. Fascinating insights on the influence of early photography on Gerome's work and his popularity in the United States. Some of the essays on certain aspects of Gerome's art by various scholars veer toward the abstruse - and translation may be the problem here - but this volume can be enjoyed by experts and admirers alike.

  • This book is beautifully illustrated. The profuse (nearly every other page) mostly full page color reproductions of paintings were of a uniform high quality. The accompanying text was a perfect combination of historical and cultural context and pictorial analysis without being overly didactic. I found it very readable (and what a great way to introduce a young person to painting this would be) Anyone who loves representational art at it's technical and romantic apogee will find this a pleasure to look at and read over and over again.

  • Some of the reviewers write there is too much text, others that the art reproductions are small; well, I felt sure it would be nice if it were larger and hardcover, but the commentary is insightful and the reproductions stunning. This is the only book on Gerome who is gaining renewed appreciation after long neglect. This is a wonderful and essential addition to any art lover's library.

  • I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and looking at the Gerome paintings which are great. I then saw this book in the museum book store and had a chance to look through it before buying it here (cheaper) on Amazon.com. I'm glad I looked before buying. There are two types of art books. One is the scholarly type with tons of text and then, two, the type that has a few pages of information in the front and then the "Color Plates" with little or no text. I much prefer the latter. I know what I like and I don't need an art scholar mumbling away in the driest words imagineable. I want sizeable pictures, color and detail. I want to look at art first and read about it second. Unfortunately this book is all about the text and the index of the paintings. Many of the pictures are reduced in size to accommodate the endless text... Too bad. Not buying this one.
