Is this kitsch or is it high art? 🤔
In the second half of the 19th century, Jean-Léon Gérôme’s history paintings, so perfect down to the smallest detail, made him the undisputed star of the annual Paris Salon art exhibition. His paintings are dramatic and exotic and a real feast for the eyes. In his Saint Jerome, he explores a topic painted many times in Christian art – yet never in such an unusual and innovative way.

Throwback Thursday: Showing Vose's Collection.
On October 9th 1890 the Art Club opened an exhibition of works loaned by the famed dealer and collector Seth Vose.
Vose was one of the first Americans to see the value of artworks produced by the French Barbizon School, and promoted them heavily in his family's gallery. The display of these important works likely influenced artists such as Edward Bannister, an important African American landscapist and a founder of the Art Club.
Flip through the catalogue to see what pieces were included in our exhibition of some of Mr. Vose's impressive collection.
The show included works by such notables as Courbet, Delacroix, Corot, Millet, Daubigny, Gericault, Meissonier, and Pissarro. And it was only on view for two weeks!
