Counter-revolutionary[edit]

I was a little taken back about the use ofthis term, which some querents might consider value-laden. It would be better to have some kind of refrenced source that querents then evaluate at their leisure. What do people think?20:36, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Destroyed?[edit]

"Most of his works have either been lost or destroyed." This seems an odd statement. I know of no evidence for that. Where does trhis claim come from? Paul B (talk) 14:30, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

His death? I have read an article in the New York Times from 1904 that Gérôme had died in his bed and not in front of a Rembrandt Painting!!! It was his Obituary from January, 10th 1904 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Art history 2011 (talkcontribs) 16:40, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

File:Geromeslavemarket.jpg[edit]

File:Geromeslavemarket.jpg should also be added as it is one of his paintings.--202.153.47.59 (talk) 08:16, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
