Seymour Joseph Guy (1824–1910
I was sick so I stayed home and watched “The Phantom of the Opera” I just love that movie! I was researching about the movie and then the book, it turns out illustrations made by Andr’e Castaigne “They Sat Like That For A Moment Of Silence” and others … his teacher was Jean-Le’on Gerome. I am familiar with J L Gerome as his work sat in our living room for quite some years. I will have to devote some time to this, what fun!
