The Studios of Paris
The Capital of Art in the Late Nineteenth CenturyBook - 1988
In this highly readable book John Milner writes of the life of the artist in Paris between 1880 and 1914 and discusses the economic, social, organisational and geographical factors which determined and controlled the artist's career, without the usual distortion caused by paying excessive attention to subsequent reputation. The result is a most engaging and attractive account of what it was like to be an artist in Paris in its heyday as the artistic capital of the world, and also an examination of the city itself, both as a source of opportunity and as as image in the work of the greatest (and also some now forgotten) artists of the time.
