Narrative: On reaching the age of twenty-one, however, Gerome discovered that he comprehended design as well or better than his teacher, and retired from the studio. He went back and labored with Delaroche once more. This new companionship lasted a year, during which Gerome, as assistant to his old professor, outlined the "Charlemagne Crossing the Alps Delaroche's historical painting now in the Versailles Gallery. Still, the family at Vesoul were dinning "Rome!" into the young man's ears. "Rome before all!" they said. Gerome presented himself at the competition. Received among the first with his sketch, he failed in the execution of the figure. Already he understood nature, in a way of his own, a way not altogether academic, and a little tending to the dry and lusterless precision of the photograph. His competition-study was judged incomparably inferior to those of two rivals now hardly held worthy of comparison with him. Gerome did not lose courage. To prepare himself for new struggles he undertook to essay the execution of two, nude figures the size of nature. This was the origin of the "Cock-Fight." Gerome had applied himself to the work with no other view than that of study, and without dreaming of another kind of success. He wanted to learn, and to succeed the better, he examined with a very uncommon degree of scrupulous frankness the model he had chosen. ...Then came the Revolution of 1848, during which, only too faithful to his idyllic views, he headed a deputation with a petition for the abolition of marriage. To this class belongs the "After the Bath," at the Paris Exhibition. Only a master of painting could string such a row of orient pearls. Only a voluptuary could set so delicately into view the niceties of form demanded by connoisseurs. Only a very jaded voluptuary could set down all these formulas of beauty with such evidently cold senses, with such absolute want of tenderness and compassion.
