To support the catalogue and 2008 exhibition Portrait of a Lady: American Paintings and Photographs, 1870–1915, which was inspired by the research that produced the La Fayette online database, a record of over 1700 paintings by American artists that entered French public collections before 1940. Sponsored by the Terra Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation, the La Fayette database was created in 2005–2006 to promote public awareness of these collections and to stimulate research on pre-1945 American art in French public collections. Following the presentation at the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux (Bordeaux, France) hosts the exhibition.
