École des Beaux-Arts

A school founded in 1648 in Paris to teach painting and sculpture, literally the “School of Fine Arts”; architecture was added to the studies in 1819, emphasizing the study of Classical Greek and Roman buildings; the students were grouped in ateliers supervised by a master. Richard Morris Hunt was one of the first Americans to study at the school, followed by many other late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century architects.

École des Beaux-Arts

The school in Paris that taught elaborate, historic, and eclectic architecture, designed on a monumental scale, based on classical architecture of Hellenic Greece and Imperial Rome, that adapted features of French architecture of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries; became a State institution in 1863 and still is the center of the teaching of architecture in France. Also see Beaux-Arts style.
