Okay, time for a quiz! I'm going to show you a painting, and you have to pick out the artist. Ready?
An ethnographic Orientalist painting with photographic detail, bold, dense color and – oh, you already knew this one was a Gérôme? Okay, that was a test to see if you were paying attention!
Here are the details:
The Snake Charmer (1879) by Jean-Léon Gérôme. The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute (Williamstown, MA).
