Art Students League of New York

Founded in 1875, the Art Students League of New York has played an enormous role in the cultural development of the New York art scene. Begun at a time when most of the important artists and art institutions were in Europe, the Art Students League soon became a central point for national and international art education. Students received technical training, and many were involved in the art movements of their time. Throughout its history, the Art Students League has been home to a diverse student body, among whom were such major figures as the American Masters Frederic Remington, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, and Maurice Sendak. Its professors have included such noted artists as Thomas Eakins and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Though no longer playing as central a role in the American art world, the Art Students League of New York continues to thrive as an educational institution.
