Left Bank New York, Artists Off Washington Square 1890s to 1920: A lecture with Virgina Budny

After training in Europe, some of America’s most famous painters and sculptors transformed stables and townhouses north of Washington Square into artists’ studios. There they created works of art and permanently changed the areas as they socialized. Prominent among them were Thomas Wilmer Dewing, Daniel Chester French, Gaston Lachaise, and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. This lecture is based on Ms. Budny’s traveling exhibit of the same name.
