The Slave Market, 1867, Jean-Leon Gerome
Gerome travelled to Constantinople in 1853, when he was 29.  He was already a prolific painter, and he soon became one of the most prolific and influential Orientalist artists.
This painting, which we’ll come back to later on, is a step away from the realism of Roberts’ picture.  It’s designed for voyeuristic appeal, and the D/s relations are foregrounded, whereas Robert’s slaves (and dealers) look slightly bored.
