La Vérité sortant du puits, armée de son martinet pour châtier l'humanité[1] (1896, English: Truth Rising from her Well) is a painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme located in the Museum Anne-de-Beaujeu. The woman is naked and carries a scourge, "to punish mankind", as the title says.

In 2015, the Wikipedia page stated: "It is an attempt to describe the transparency of an illusion. He therefore welcomed the rise of photography as an alternative to his photographic painting. In 1902, he said "Thanks to photography, Truth has as last left her well.""
