The Beaux Arts Academy lasted some three hundred years, and by 1900 had become an international phenomenon with schools in every major capital of the world. For three centuries it produced the artists who formulated and founded the major periods of occidental art history - the Rococo, NeoClassicism, Romanticism, Realism, the Animaliers, Impressionism, Symbolism, the Barbizon, the Nazerene and Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhoods, Orientalism, Victorian Art, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Advertising and Illustration, Surrealism, Fascist and Socialist Realism, and the Westem Art of Indians and cowboys.
