Jean-Leon Gerome was a French painter and sculptor who was known for his Orientalist historical painting and use of Greek mythology, known as academicism. Gerome studied in Paris and made several visits to Greece, Egypt and Turkey. These countries influenced his style and Gerome painted many Oriental style canvases depicting Arab religions, landscapes and genre scenes.
Gerome was against the new style of Impressionist painting that was becoming prominent, but after seeing the impressionist paintings by Edouard Manet stated that the Impressionist Movement was “not so bad”.
The Carpet Merchant of Cairo painted around 1887 is one Jean-Leon Gerome’s finest paintings.
Another popular painting by Jean-Leon Gerome is Pool in a Harem c1876.
