François Gérôme (born 1895 in Paris) was a French painter.

He is best known for his paintings of women depicted at picturesque spots throughout Paris including the Place de la Concorde and in front of the Opéra. In these representations, the women usually engage the viewer with their frontal pose and direct gaze outward. Gerome used oils, typically on canvas or on board. Gerome typically signed his paintings with his first initial and last name, but was also known to sign in his alias B. Kovacs.
