The Cock Fight[1] (1847) is a painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme.

At the Paris Salon of 1847 Jean-Léon Gérôme depicted a composition in which, in a scene of antiquity, a young boy and a girl attend the combat of two cocks. Gérôme gained fame from this exhibition, and in the next year formed the Neo-Grec group with Jean-Louis Hamon and Henri-Pierre Picou—all three pupils in the same atelier under Charles Gleyre.
