This is a fine print on a puckery, soft, Japan-like very delicate paper, the image featuring an obviously Orientalist figure and a greyhound-like dog. The print is after the original 1865 painting by the artist, that painting having been offered at Sotheby's auction in 2009. JEAN LEON GEROME (1824-1904) was a major French academic painter and sculptor and educator of legions of artists in the 19th century in France. Today his historical subject and Orientalist works sell into the millions . This etching (engraving?) is very detailed and is in excellent condition (not examined out of the frame) with the exception of a bit of foreign dark material to the left of the figure's head (it might be on the inside of the glass---hard to tell). Measurements are 12 1/4" by 8 3/8" inside the mat, and 18 3/4" by 13 1/2" as framed.
