About this title


For American artists of the 19th century, Paris offered famous teachers, willing models, cheap lodgings, and museums filled with art. The Lure of Paris is the first book to investigate so thoroughly the experiences of these American artists. Exhaustively researched and lavishly illustrated, this groundbreaking study will be requisite for collectors, scholars and everyone curious about America's cultural history.

From Publishers Weekly:

Nineteenth-century American artists were more cosmopolitan thangenerally is acknowledged, claims Weinberg. A prime example is ThomasEakins, too often "treated as a purely American isolatio, like WaltWhitman." But expatriate Eakins, as Weinberg notes, was molded in theatelier of French painter Jean-Leon Gerome, who moved easily fromintimate, witty history painting to photographic realism to exoticcontemporary works. A curator at Manhattan's Metropolitan Museum ofArt, Weinberg detects Gerome's influence in Eakins's Arcadian images,in Julian Alden Weir's Americanized impressionism, and in AbbottThayer's portrait of a voluptuous angel with immense, naturalisticwings. John Singer Sargent, Cecilia Beaux, Elizabeth Jane Gardner,James McNeill Whistler and Robert Henri are among the dozens of otherAmericans who studied in France. This hefty, gloriously illustratedstudy makes a major contribution by restoring the work of theseartists to the cosmopolitan context in which they painted.
