Book Synopsis: Charles Franklin Chamberlain, 1871 - 1947, was a farmer by birth but an artist by heart. This is his story including a brief biography though told mostly through letters exchanged with his mother and friends during his many travels, and highlighted by his art and photography.
Charles studied in Chicago, Detroit, New York, and Paris. Charles attended art school at the Detroit Academy, and in 1892-93 went off to study at the Art Students League of New York. It was in Detroit as well as in New York that Charles made many connections in the art world and soon was determined to make his way to Paris to further his studies. Charles' first trip to France was in 1894 and he concentrated his studies at the Academic Julian, Montmartre, Paris as well as at the newer Aman-Jean School. He spent several years in France studying under the old masters, following the impressionist influence of the time.
