The historical period commonly referred to as the Belle Epoque - the final decades of the Nineteenth Century and the beginning years of the Twentieth - continues to intrigue primarily because of the progressive changes that occurred in the arts, which spanned the period from Impressionism to the early avant-garde movements. Although the art created during this era garnered esteem and a following, certain aspects of the artistic life that were crucial at the time have since been obscured or forgotten.
