Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824–1904) was the most publicly honored and financially successful French artist of the second half of the 19th century. His Orientalist scenes were inspired by the many voyages he undertook to Egypt, North Africa, Syria, Asia Minor, and the Holy Land over the course of his career. In View of Medinet El-Fayoum, c. 1868–1870, Gérôme depicts the oldest city in Egypt, located some 80 miles southwest of Cairo. Unlike many Orientalist pictures of the day—fantasies constructed in a Parisian artist's studio—this painting is informed by empirical records, while maintaining a sense of the awe and mystery Egypt inspired in French visitors.

While the Gallery owns a drawing and two prints by Gérôme,View of Medinet El-Fayoum is the first painting by the artist to enter the collection. Purchased with the Chester Dale Fund, it joins a small group of Orientalist pictures in the West Building's recently renovated 19th-century French galleries, including Delacroix's Arabs Skirmishing (1862), Renoir's Odalisque (1870), Benjamin Constant's Favorite of the Emir (1879), and Matisse's Odalisque (1923).

The printed poster is perfectly suited for putting your art replica with the help of a custom-made frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2 - 6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, which is often labelled as a UV print on plexiglass, will turn the artwork into amazing wall decoration and makes a viable alternative option to canvas or aluminium dibond fine art replicas. Your favorite work of art is being printed with state-of-the-art UV print machines. The special effect of this are vibrant, impressive colors. The major benefit of a plexiglass print is that contrasts and small color details become more identifiable due to the very subtle gradation in the picture.

A canvas of this work of art will allow you to transform your fine art print into a large size collection piece.
