The American artist Jerome Blum studied at the Francis J. Smith Art Academy and the Art Institute of Chicago. He introduced Modernism to Chicago in 1911, after his return from Paris where he enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts for a brief period. The Fauve movement was at the height when Blum lived there, and the artist incorporated bold colors and intense light into his art. He wrote: "You go to Paris - you have been in Paris for a few years - you have become modern - you take on color - you leave off brown of the golden ages - you shed your coat of brown for colors of the rainbow - you become another phase of yourself."
