The Societe des Trois in the Nineteenth Century : The Translocal Artistic Union of Whistler, Fantin-Latour, and Legros Hardback

Part of the Routledge Research in Art History series

Description

This book reframes the formative years of three significant artists: Henri Fantin-Latour, Alphonse Legros, and James McNeill Whistler.

The trio's coming together as the Societe des trois occurred during the emergence of the artistic avant-garde-a movement toward individualism and self-expression.

Though their oeuvres appear dissimilar, it is imperative that the three artists' early work and letters be viewed in light of the Societe, as it informed many of their decisions in both London and Paris.

Each artist actively cultivated a translocal presence, creating artistic networks that transcended national borders.

Thus, this book will serve as a comprehensive resource on the development, production, implications, and eventual end of the Societe.
