Solon Borglum Letters to Emma Borglum and Children, 1919 January-April
About the Project
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 Solon Borglum, and here you will find letters dating from his military service in France attached to the Third and Fifth French Army during World War I. At that time, he was the Director of Sculpture at the specially-organized American Expeditionary Forces Art Training Center.
