Description: Artist: LOUIS J. RHEAD (1858-1926) Size: 15 1/2 x 22 3/4 in./39.2 x 57.8 cm Imp. Chaix, Paris The Quartier Latin was the literary arts magazine for young British and American expats in Belle Époque Paris, featuring contributors such as Jack B. Yeats, Kate Adair and J.K. Huysmans. While American writers decried the Latin Quarter for the "total lack of decorous restraint which should exist between young people" ('The Evils of the Latin Quarter,' Chicago Tribune, 1899), all is elegant artistry in Rhead's cover illustration. Born in England, Rhead found equal success in London, New York and Paris; his 1895 exhibition of posters in New York was America's first. (literary)
