Displaying American artists in Paris. "In the 1880s and 1890s, virtually thousands of American students were invading Paris and its art schools. Attracted by a more liberal curriculum than what was available in the United States, and aspiring to compete on an international scale, the American artists' success in assimilating the traditional French training is reflected by the number of entries and awards they received in the annual Parisian Salons."

Here is my favorite of the paintings...
