Twelve Hour Admission Sketch Problem (July 1905). Shepherd Stevens Papers (MS 865), Manuscripts and Archives, Yale University Library

Exhibition on view March 1 - August 19, 2016

An American in Paris features drawings and other documents bequeathed to Yale University Library by Shepherd Stevens, a professor of architecture at Yale (1920-1947) who studied at the renowned Ėcole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the early twentieth century (1905-1908). This selection of items from the Shepherd Stevens Papers, housed in the architectural archives at Sterling Memorial Library, provides a glimpse of student life and pedagogy at the Ėcole, as well as the early Beaux-Arts curriculum at Yale.  Curated by Suzanne Noruschat, Architecture Records Archivist, Manuscripts & Archives
