Jean-Leon Gerome (1824-1904) was an undisputed success during his life. Crowds flocked to see his vibrant compositions and thanks to mass marketing of his work through mechanical reproduction, he reached audiences on an unprecedented scale. Despite Gerome's undisputed accomplishments, his success met with critical hostility. Emile Zola, champion of Edouard Manet, dismissed Gerome as a cynical manufacturer of anecdotal images for popular consumption - a critique repeatedly levelled at artists in the years since. In light of revisionist and postmodern trends over the past four decades, however, Gerome's work is now being approached with unprecedented seriousness and refreshing candour. The ten essays in this volume go far in challenging critical biases against the artist and indeed suggest that we are just beginning to learn how to 'read' Gerome's paintings in their full complexity.

Review:

"Opens the field to fresh scholarship."--"The Burlington Magazine"""

"This engaging group of perspectives 'by this younger generation of scholars' attempts to redefine key terms and practices and contests the notion that Gerome's detailed images were intended for merely 'passive consumption.'"--"H-France Review "

"Refocusing attention on the work of Gerome, long dismissed as an antihero of modernism, this groundbreaking publication puts a new critical spin on aspects of his art once reviled - his popular appeal and the attendant mass reproduction of his paintings, his zeal for anthropological accuracy, his pictorial narrative techniques, and his cinematic imagination." - Petra ten-Doesschate Chu, Professor, Seton Hall University"

Book Description Getty Publications, Los Angeles, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First Edition. 168 pages. Softcover. New book. ART. Jean-Lon Gr me (1824-1904) was an undisputed professional success during his lifetime. Crowds flocked to see his vividly rendered historical and Orientalist compositions, and thanks to the mass marketing of his work through mechanical reproduction, he reached audiences on an unprecedented scale. From the outset, however, his success met with critical hostility. mile Zola, champion of douard Manet, dismissed Gr me as a cynical manufacturer of anecdotal images for popular consumptionÑa critique repeatedly echoed by historians of modern art. In light of revisionist and postmodern trends over the past four decades, however, Gr me's work is now being approached with unprecedented seriousness and refreshing creativity. The ten essays in this volume go far in challenging critical biases against the artist and suggesting new avenues of research. These papers indeed suggest that we are just beginning to learn how to "read" Gr me's paintings in their full complexity. Reconsidering Gr me was published to accompany the exhibition The Spectacular Art of Jean-Lon Gr me, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum June 15 through September 12, 2010. Scott Allan is assistant curator in the Department of Paintings at the J. Paul Getty Museum. Mary Morton, former associate curator in the same department, is curator of French painting at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and editor of Oudry's Painted Menagerie: Portraits of Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century Europe (Getty Publications, 2007) and coauthor of Courbet and the Modern Landscape (Getty Publications, 2006).
