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.
