Gerome in the Subway!

I was excited to see this advertisement featuring a painting by Jean-Leon Gerome in the subway the other night! Gerome was a French academic painter and sculptor whose teaching and work has influenced the way we approach our curriculum at GCA.

here is a picture of the whole painting:
Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904) Bashi-Bazouk, 1868-1869 Oil on canvas - 80.6 x 66 cm
New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
