Orientalist Paintings from the Collection of Kenneth Jay Lane

1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of its dedication, the Kenneth Jay Lane Gallery is the setting for 26 paintings that have been promised or given to The Met by Mr. Lane. The European artists represented in this exhibition, including Horace Vernet and Jean-Léon Gérôme, shared a deeply ingrained fascination for the cultures that thrived beyond the Mediterranean, from Morocco in the west to Egypt and Turkey in the east.

Mr. Venit I would like to authorise Mr. Louis Trochon to work in the study rooms of the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and to occupy the place which I nmight assign to him.

Paris. 7 February , 1859.
