Discover the life and work of Charles Meryon (1821–1868), a French artist whose fantastic and sinister prints of Paris helped launch an etching revival in the nineteenth century across Europe and the United States. The book presents a sweeping view of Meryon’s oeuvre, from his etchings of the South Pacific, inspired by his travels as an officer in the French Navy, to now-iconic views of Paris and its Gothic landmarks. Published on the occasion of Telfair’s exhibition Gothic Soul: Charles Meryon, this publication recounts the little-known story of the Merci Train—49 boxcars of gifts donated by ordinary French citizens to the United States after World War II—and its role in bringing Charles Meryon’s work to Savannah and Telfair Museums in 1949.

68 pages with 48 full-color images.
