Americans in Paris 1860-1900 (National Gallery Company)
Kathleen Adler, Erica E. Hirshler, H. Barbara WeinbergISBN: 1857093011;
As the center of the art world in the late nineteenth century, Paris was a magnet for American art students and artists. They flocked to the studios of French artists like Jean-LA©on GA©rA?me, William Bouguereau, and others, dreamed of showing their work at the annual Paris Salon, and watched intently as new styles such as Impressionism began to take hold. Hardly an American painter was unaffected by developments in Paris, and even those who chose not to study there wanted their work to be affirmed by French audiences and taste makers. This beautifully illustrated book traces the role of American artists in Paris from the Salon des RefusA©s, in 1863, to the emergence of a uniquely American style of painting at the turn of the century.
