The Studios of Paris: The Capital of Art in the Late Nineteenth Century Very Good Condition with some highlighting on five pages, paperback. The Studios of Paris by John Milner is a beautiful collection of art work and art studios in Paris, France. This book is about Paris during one of the most complex periods of its history, when its artists were numbered in thousands and when the annual Salon jury reduced its selection of works for display to a privileged 5,000-6,000 works. Features works by Degas, Meissonier, Jules Lefebvre, Edouard Manet, Jean-Francois Millet, Augustin-Jean, George's Seurat, Rodin, and so many more artists! Features Meissonier's studio, and several other famous studios in Paris. Places like Le Chateau, The Louvre, Rue de La Bruyere, etc. Beautiful book is a collectible for anyone who appreciates art. Great for a coffee table also!

From Library Journal:

From the lofty institutionsthe Louvre and Ecole des Beaux Artsto the alleys and byways of Montmartre and Montparnasse, Milner describes the Parisian 19th-century art world. He considers salon stars and hopefuls, expositions, public monuments, painters painting other painters, and neighborhood attractions and distractions. The well-informed text combines a tour guide approach with historical narrative using quoted source material. There is some similarity of intent to Philippe Julian's Montmartre (1977), though this work was oriented more to personality and intimate description. Color plates include city scenes by Tissot, Jean Beraud, Caillebotte, and John Singer Sargent. While attractive, this book will be of interest mostly to students and scholars. Hara Seltzer, NYPL
