View full artist profile

Elizabeth Nourse began studying art at the McMiken School of Design which later became the Art Academy of the Cincinnati Art Museum. In 1887, she travelled to Paris with her older sister Louise, where she studied for three months with Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre at the Académie Julian. She exhibited La Mère at the Paris Salon in 1888. She later travelled to Russia, other parts of western Europe and North Africa. She is best known for her depictions of French working class people, especially women and children.
