by Jean-Leon Gerome
Although this is a model dressed to depict the Turkish fighters that painter Jean-Leon Gerome encountered on his travels, this portrait seeks to depict the unpaid irregular soldiers who fought ferociously for plunder under Ottoman leadership. In that sense, Gerome is revealing the heroism of these abused fighters.
