Art à la King presented by Taylor J. Acosta, Ph.D., Associate Curator of European Art

Jehan Georges Vibert (French, 1840-1902), The King of Rome, 1900, oil on canvas mounted on panel, Gift of Francis T. B. Martin, 1990.7

Possessed of a cynical wit and great technical ability, Vibert produced numerous anecdotal pictures that satirized the Catholic Church, while never abandoning the “higher” genres of history and allegorical painting. The artist invented a number of products for painters, including special varnishes, brushes, and a red paint, which he named "Vibert Red" which he used for many of his cardinal paintings. Savor this painting along with a menu featuring vibrant dishes from the kitchen!
