The Bath: Jean-Léon Gérôme

The Bath is an 1880-1885 nude genre oil on canvas painting in the Academic and Orientalist style by French artist and sculptor Jean-Léon Gérôme.

Hammams are traditional public bathhouses that have been an integral part of the bathing and social culture in various Middle Eastern and North African countries for centuries. The term “hammam” is derived from the Arabic word “حمّام,” which means “heating up.” These bathhouses have historical, cultural, and social significance, providing a space for cleansing, relaxation, and socializing.
