Edmund Tarbell Letters to Emeline Souther Tarbell, 1885 February-October
About the Project
Many American artists traveled to Paris, France, to further their careers. Several of the American portraitists, realists, impressionists, and abstract artists that studied, lived, and worked in Paris, France during the late 19th and early 20th centuries wrote letters home to family and friends describing their lives there. One of these artists was Edmund Charles Tarbell, who wrote letters about his student life in 1880s Paris to his fianceé Emeline Souther.
