Description

Bonebrake first went to France in 1939 while an architecture student at Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve University). He won a scholarship to attend the summer art school in Fontainebleau, a town near Paris, where he made watercolors and etchings. Weekends, he traveled throughout the country, and he returned to France many times in later years, especially after his uncle married a Frenchwoman. Although he visited many other places, his print collection reflects his love of French culture.
