Emmanuel Bénézit’s Paris was the unrivaled center of Western art, the home of Cézanne, Monet, Picasso, and Matisse, and the birthplace of Impressionism, post-Impressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism. In this thrilling context, Bénézit (b. 1854) undertook the monumental project of the Dictionnaire critique et documentaire des peintres, sculpteurs, dessinateurs et graveurs… Now comprising fourteen volumes with entries on nearly 170,000 artists, the Benezit Dictionary of Artists is the most comprehensive source of artists’ biographies in the English language.”– Oxford Art Online

Look into the life of your favourite artist in “Benezit Dictionary of Artists“. Did you know Tom Thomson lived in “Seattle where he worked as a photo-engraver”?
