About Richard Morris Hunt:
Richard Morris Hunt was the first American to attend the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. When he returned to the United States, he introduced the country to Beaux Arts and Renaissance Revival architecture.
Hunt became famous for designing elaborate homes for the very wealthy. However, he worked on many different types of buildings including libraries, civic buildings, apartment buildings, and art museums.
Hunt also helped establish architecture as a profession in the U.S. He started the first American studio for architect training and helped found the American Institute of Architects (AIA). In 1855, he served as president of the AIA. He was a mentor to Philadelphia architect Frank Furness and New York City-born George B. Post.
Hunt's brother, William Morris Hunt, was a well-known painter.
