Art League Book Study: The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris
Dates: Thu Apr 19, 12
David McCullough's newest book tells the story of adventurous 19th-century American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, and architects who lived and worked in Paris. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant "City of Light" and center of Western culture, luminaries such as Senate abolitionist Charles Sumner, physicians Elizabeth Blackwell and Oliver Wendell Holmes, writers Ralph Waldo Emerson, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Henry James, and artists Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Mary Cassatt and John Singer Sargent achieved great recognition and fame, both at home and abroad.
