Artista Charles Sprague Pearce























Biography:
Charles Sprague-Pearce.- During the mid-nineteenth century, before America had truly established its claim to artistic originality, American artists were seduced by the fascinating Parisian art scene. During the latter half of the nineteenth century an important group of American artists congregated in France, among them Mary Cassatt, James Abbot MacNeill Whistler - though only temporarily- and Daniel Ridgway Knight, among many others. Another American artist, albeit one who has not been given sufficient attention, is Charles Sprague Pearce (October 13, 1851 - May 18, 1914), whose presence in Paris and later Auvers-sur-Oise was important for the propagation and appreciation of American artwork, even though he continued to be strongly influenced by the predominant European artistic styles of the period.
