Bashi-Bazouk (1868-1869) is a strangely intriguing portrait by Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904). It's hard to imagine that this dignified man actually represents an irregular Ottoman soldier known for their brutality, ferociousness, and relentless plundering. #Art #Painting #ArtHistory #Artwork #HistoryofArt #Portrait #Soldier #Ottoman #BashiBazouk #Ferocious #Brutal #Intriguing #Metropolitan #Museum #NewYork #Gerome #JeanLeonGerome
