9780943526300: The Tenth Street Studio Building: Artist-entrepreneurs from the Hudson River School to the American impressionists

New York's Tenth Street Studio Building (1857-1956), designed by Richard Morris Hunt, housed some of the most important artists in the United States, notably Frederic E. Church, Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer, John La Farge, and William Merritt Chase. The tenants worked, taught, exhibited, promoted, and sold their work from their studios and the gallery. This book examines not only the architecture and functions of the building, illustrating a number of the studios, but also the marketing of art in the 19th century. Excerpts from diaries, letters, and autobiographies provide a sense of the congeniality and collaboration among the tenants. A roster of tenants from 1857 to 1895 is included.
