Why did so many artists choose to work and live in Paris? In this course, we will attempt to answer that question as we explore Paris from a cultural and historical perspective, specifically looking at the reasons Paris provided such a fertile cultural environment for many expatriate artists, from the Lost Generation (such as Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, and Pablo Picasso), to women (such as Gertrude Stein, Janet Flanner, and Sylvia Beach), and African American writers and artists (including Richard Wright, James Baldwin and  Chester Himes). Beginning with a historical overview of France and Paris, we will then delve deeper into a study of several individual artists and their works. During the travel portion, we will visit the great monuments and cultural highlights of Paris as well as the cafés and other lesser-known treasures frequented by the artists, to get a true feel for the Paris experience and understand the conditions in which these artists lived and worked.
