in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, a French Colonial town near St. Louis dating to 1735. Its picturesque beauty attracted painters dedicated to American Scene painting during the Great Depression. The Ste.

Affiliated artists were Thomas Hart Benton, Joe Jones, Fred Conway, Max Ziegler, Joseph Vorst, Oscar Thalinger, Bernard Peters, Joseph Meert, Miriam McKinnie, Martyl Schweig and Sister Cassiana Marie. The town remains a tourist attraction with local groups sponsoring tours of French Creole homes, the annual King???s Ball, and a Winter Rendezvous with French Christmas festivities.
