Sundays Art: Duel After A Masquerade Ball

Jean-Léon Gérôme May 11, 1824 – January 10, 1904 was a French painter and sculptor in the style now known as Academicism. The range of his oeuvre included historical painting, Greek mythology, Orientalism, portraits and other subjects, bringing the Academic painting tradition to an artistic climax.


  1. I knew that this blog would shine out in the sea of banal cobblers that is the world of weblogs, and I weren't wrong.

    I love the visual impact of the blog and your dedication to the stated obsession.

    Best to you and yours.


  2. I found your blog via Bookblog.ning and you have a great blog. Have you read Charles Nicholl's The Reckoning? It's about the death/murder of Christopher Marlowe and although it's non-fiction, it reads like a great historical mystery. I highly recommend it.


  3. Thank you Dave your are a wonderful pleasure! I am elated it shows how dedicated I am to my obsession.

  4. Mike, no I have not read that one. I actually do not mind a non fiction read, if it is a good one. I will check it out and add it to my list, thanks for the advice. I can always use it. More, & more books!

  5. This painting speaks louder than words. The feeling is so in the moment. Beautiful. Thanks:)

  6. It's so good to hear that you are finally able to comment. I think that would be one of the most frustrating things in the world.
