Although a related exhibition was organized by the Brooklyn Museum and presented at the Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas, Austin, the Brooklyn Museum and Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, San Juan, this publication does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: Francisco Oller (1833-1917) was a Puerto Rican painter whose work was admired on both sides of the Atlantic. A native of San Juan, Oller spent over twenty years in Europe, developing mutually influential relationships with such artists as Camille Pissarro and Gustave Courbet. Despite his accomplishment and international recognition, little recent scholarship exists on him. In this original and important book, Edward J. Sullivan advances close readings of works spanning Oller's entire career and offers insights into the development of the Caribbean basin in the 19th century. With rich illustrations, From San Juan to Paris and Back recasts Oller as a central figure in 19th-century art and restores the significance of Oller's work and his influence in shaping a uniquely Caribbean aesthetic.
