Arnaut Officer

Arnaut Officer


Artist: Jean Léone Gérôme
Title: Arnaut Officer
Signed:
Medium:
Size:
French Orientalist

For artists these unfinished paintings or studies are a treasure trove. Here the pencil outlines of the figures are only slightly hidden behind a thin wash. Eventhough the work is in it's early stages the arnaut has a solid presence and is well grounded, through the cast shadow. The clothing already shows promise of great attention to detail as we are used to seeing in Gërôme's work.
