"Does Gerome Belong with Goya and Monet?" (New York Times, 13 April 1980) is an article by art critic Hilton Kramer.

Excerpt: "It is the destiny of corpses, after all, to remain buried, and salon painting was found to be very dead indeed. But nowadays there is no art so dead that an art historian cannot be found to detect some simulacrum of life in its moldering remains. In the last decade, there has, in fact, arisen in the-scholarly world a powerful sub-profession that specializes in these lugubrious disinterments."
