More about The Tryst
Jean-Leon Gerome was known for his orientalist paintings influenced by his travel to Egypt in 1856. The exterior version of The Tryst shows a male sitting on top of a tall camel, reaching to kiss a woman behind a window. The interior version shows the same woman standing on the back of another woman to reach the window. The pair of paintings is now at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Missouri.
