A posthumous recognition is a ceremonial award or praise given after the recipient has died. In the past, many artists were not recognized during their lifetime, and may artists who were successful during their lifetime are now forgotten. Take for example Vincent van Gogh and Jean-Léon Gérôme. The latter now forgotten, the first now celebrated.
