Gallery 19C recently announced the arrival of its second catalogue on the famed 19th-century painter Jeon-Léon Gérôme. “We have assembled a group of five important paintings from different periods in Gérôme’s career,” the gallery says. “They highlight not only his focus on Orientalism but also his early interest in Néo-Grec subject matter.
“A common thread linking these paintings is their early American provenance, which can be traced back to important American collectors, such as Catharine Lorillard Wolfe, one of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s first benefactors.
