Description:
Jean-Léon Gérôme (French, 1824-1904) Diane et Actéon signed 'J. L. Gerome' (lower left) oil on canvas 25 ¼ x 39 3/8 in. (64.1 x 100 cm.) Painted in 1895. Ovid\\\’s Metamorphoses seem to have held a particular fascination for Gérôme during the first half of the 1890s. Between 1890 and 1892, Gérôme made both painted and sculpted variations on the theme of Pygmalion and Galatea, including the version now preserved in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (fig. 1), and also the present painting, which draws inspiration from Book III of Ovid\\\’s text. The myth tells of the hunter Actaeon accidentally surprising Diana, the virgin goddess of the hunt, while she and her nymphs are bathing. While the nymphs and Diana frantically try to cover her nakedness, the resultant splashing transforms the hunter into a stag, and he is later tracked and killed by his own dogs, unable to recognize their master. Rather than falling back on older models for depicting this story – either just showing the moment at which Acteon surprises Diana, or adding a twist on that idea by showing Acteon beginning to grow antlers while surprising Diana – Gérôme has instead taken a wholly new approach to the composition by compressing the story into a single narrative and uniting the composition around the single moment of greatest action. As the hunting party and dogs at left follow in hot pursuit of the stag, the beast is depicted splashing down into the water, seemingly mid-transformation. This commotion has roused the figures in the foreground, Diana and her nymphs as well as some unsuspecting ducks, to action, fleeing from this sudden and violent interruption of their solitude and frantically gathering their clothing. In addition to bringing his own twist to the story of Diana and Actaeon, the picture also afforded Gérôme the continued opportunity to demonstrate his brilliance in painting the nude female form. The landscape in the present painting seems to have been inspired by the landscape around the Bois de Saint Cucufa west of Paris, which Gerome visited several times during this same time period. The occasion for these visits is unclear, but the area\\\’s rolling hills, verdant forest, and lily-padded pond recur in both the present work and several others from these same years – Léda et le cygne (1896), Solitude (1896) and Les Étangs de Saint-Cucufa (1896). We are grateful to Graydon Parrish for confirming the authenticity of this work. (fig. 1) Jean-Léon Gérôme, Pygmalion and Galatea, circa 1890. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Description:
Jean-Léon Gérôme French, 1824 - 1904 LA JOUEUSE DE BOULES (THE BOULES PLAYER) signed J L. GEROME and with foundry inscription SIOT PARIS and numbered 845 H gilt bronze height 34 1/2 in. 87 cm Literature G. Ackerman, The Life and Work of Jean-Léon Gérôme, London and New York, 1986, p.326 Catalogue Note Gérôme exhibited his Joueuse de Boules in the Salon of 1902. He used an invented Néo-Grec ball game to twist and display the nude female form as the woman attempts to drop the balls into the mouths of the masks on the base without moving her feet. Her contorted pose echoes that of the antique Satyr Examining his Tail in the Vatican Museums. According to Ackerman, the Joueuse was edited in bronze in three sizes by the Siot-Decauville foundry, with this being the largest.  A gilt-bronze version of the smaller size is in the Hirshorn Museum, Washington DC.
