Bathsheba by Jean Leon Gerome is an excellent choice for your art collection. Its delicate color and detailed depiction of women and their clothing will make any room seem luxurious and comfortable.

The sculptural forms of the figure are important in Gerome's version of the story. The woman's clothing and the light reflecting off her white skin make the painting a perfect example of a classical Greek myth. In addition to this, Gerome also used a marble sculpture of himself as a prop. Gerome's version of Bathsheba was one of the most widely reproduced paintings of its day, and it drew criticism from the likes of Thomas Couture.

A great piece of art history is never complete without a story of love. In this case, the king's wife Bathsheba was a Hittite. Uriah was a soldier in David's army. She was beautiful and clever, but unfaithful, and he fell for her because of it. The Bible does not mention consent for sex, but Gerome makes this part of the story very interesting.

The painting is one of the most beautiful paintings ever painted. It is a beautiful example of the Renaissance master's talent and vision. It is worth looking at, even if you don't love classical art, as you'll likely find many beautiful pieces in his paintings. So take a look! And don't forget to check out his other works, too! You'll be glad you did.
