Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on leading artists, from John Singleton Copley to John Sloan, the authors address narrative content in colonial and early national portraits; genre scenes of the Jacksonian period; images from the Civil War era; and works by American Impressionists and realists in the decades before and after 1900. Like the exhibition it accompanies, the book reflects transformations in artistsand#8217; aspirations and viewersand#8217; expectations as America evolved from isolated British outpost to leading independent participant in international affairs.
