At the Paris Salon of 1861 Gérôme exhibited Phryne before the Areopagus, Le Roi Candaule[1] and Socrates finding Alcibiades in the House of Aspasia[2] (1861). The works gave rise to some scandal by reason of the subjects selected by the painter, and brought down on him the bitter attacks of Paul de Saint-Victor and Maxime Du Camp.

At the same Salon he exhibited the Egyptian chopping Straw, and Rembrandt biting an Etching, two very minutely finished works.
