WOODLAND HILLS.- Gallery 19C
presents their second catalogue, GÉRÔME
. The gallery has assembled a group of five important paintings from different periods in master artist Jean-Léon Gérômes career. 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 Arts first benefactors.
A primary goal of Gallery 19C is to present exceptional examples of the wide-ranging paintings that define the 19th century. Jean-Léon Gérôme will always feature prominently in any discussion of the period. The unparalleled technical virtuosity of his technique continues to attract us and beckons us to marvel at his art.
Gallery 19C is an international gallery focusing exclusively on the 19th Century, one of the richest, most diverse 100 years in the history of art. No one is better positioned to serve todays passionate collector by introducing them to the quality and the diversity of The Spectacular 19th Century.
