Mormon art missionaries french art mission


Sponsored by the LDS Mormon Church in Salt Lake City, male artists in the 1890s traveled to Paris, France to get formal art training at Academie Julian so they could skillfully execute murals and canvas paintings for the Church. Among the group were Herman Haag, Lorus Pratt, John Hafen, Myra Sawyer, Rose Hartwell, Edwin Evans, and John B. Fairbanks. Many of them such as Hafen were influenced away from Realism and purely religious subjects by French styles of Tonalism and Impressionism and by French landscape painters.
