Arabs Crossing The Desert by Jean-Leon Gerome

This past weekend, I had a great time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I love anything that has to do with Art, so this was a treat for me. I visited the MET after almost 10 years, so I noticed quite a bit of change, of course.

My favorite from this trip had to be Arabs Crossing the Desert by Jean-Leon Gerome. This is an oil painting, and the clarity is phenomenal. The perspective, fabulous and the effect, dramatic.
You can almost feel the scorching heat, the blinding sunlight, and the dust in your eyes.

I'm attaching a snap of the painting. It's a treat for the eyes.
