Lying with lions

This painting by Gérôme was recently discovered in Frankfurt after many decades. It was thought that it had been destroyed. The unfinished walls of the cave are magnificent!

As I already told, earlier this year I attended an exhibition on Gérôme. Quite impressive.

Now, coincidentally, Bvlgari is mimicking the same idea with Kirsten Dunst and Rachel Weisz.

Jean-Léon Gérôme, St. Jeronimo (1874)

 Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Tepidarium (1881)

 Henri Rousseau, La Bohémienne endormie (1897)

Rachel Weisz for Bvlgari (2011)
