When did it close? Why? --sparkit 04:09, Apr 21, 2005 (UTC)

Unsourced[edit]

What, who is Hamilton King, the only source supplied? Therefrom the tag. --rpd (talk) 20:50, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Adolphe William Bouguereau[edit]

Adolphe William Bouguereau won Prix de Rome in 1850, far before 1868, when Académie Julian was established. Bouguereau did teach there as a professor. --Leeearnest (talk) 20:26, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Status: notability?[edit]

Does it make sense to limit new additions to this list? Is it appropriate at this stage of the article's development to initiate a standard limiting names on this select list to

(a) those who already have Wikipedia articles
and
(b) those who are notable for something other than having depicted war in art -- see, e.g., US Navy Cross edit history?

In a context informed by practices which seem to have worked out well at Navy Cross, all new additions who aren't already featured in an article could be re-redirected to this talk page section with the following edit history explanation:

artist must be known for something other than studying at this art school -- see "Status: Notability" on talk page

The redlinks of those who do not have an article yet are listed below:

Notes
  1. ^ a b c d Farmer, J. David. "Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Académie Julian," California Art Club. April/May, 2000.
  2. ^ a b Russell, John. "An Art School That Also Taught Life," New York Times. March 19, 1989.

When any of the above-listed redlink names turn blue, we will know that transferring these names to the talk page was a worthwhile exercise. If none turn blue, then we can deduce something about the notability of these artists. --Tenmei (talk) 14:21, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

List of names[edit]

This list is quite silly. There is no information here. Just names. This needs an overhaul with prose discussing the legacy of the academy with a discussion of some of the students. We can't list them all. It serves no purpose as it stands. freshacconci talktalk 15:38, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

I propose to remove the list of notable students, and to direct users to Category:Alumni of the Académie Julian. Ideally the list here should be compared with the list in the category, and the individual articles updated as necessary.
I would retain the much shorter list of notable professors (but to correct it - see below). Verbcatcher (talk) 15:18, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Students in 1883[edit]

Where might one be able to find a list of students from this year? There is a photo of Frances Benjamin Johnston in a group of women students in one of the FBJ books (sorry, it was from the library, years ago, I don't recall which book) but I *think* it was her class in Paris, about 1883. There is a woman in the front row with her hand on a skull; perhaps it was an art class where they studied anatomy. The ideal would be to find a list of the women in the photo. - Kathryn NicDhàna 18:12, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts[edit]

The article says that the Académie prepared students for the École des Beaux-Arts. This probably means specifically the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, also in Paris, doesn't it, rather than any of the several Écoles des Beaux-Arts around France? If there's no objection, I'll clarify that point. Colonies Chris (talk) 12:01, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Was Jules Cavaillès a professor at Académie Julian?[edit]

The article lists Jules Cavaillès as a notable professor. Is this accurate? It is not mentioned in his article, nor on the site referenced from his article. Verbcatcher (talk) 14:49, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

List of notable professors[edit]

Further to the above, the following are listed as notable professors, but their articles do not mention that they taught at the Académie Julian.

If there are reliable references for them teaching at the Académie Julian then their articles should be updated accordingly, and added to Category:Faculty of the Académie Julian. If there is no reliable reference than they should be removed from this article. Verbcatcher (talk) 15:10, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
