Nineteenth Century American Art

Nineteenth Century American Art Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This innovative introduction examines the profession of the nineteenth-century American artist and audience reception of their work. Works of art by familiar names such as Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer are discussed in detail within the larger arena of visual culture, as are key works by recently discovered artists such as Harriet Hosmer. The thematic approach focuses on portraiture, landscape painting, the American West, and commemorative art, then goes on to examine the ways in which painters responded to major social and economic changes resulting from the rapid transformation from an agriculturally-based former colony to an industrialized imperial power with an evolving democracy.

About the Author

Professor of Art History at Ohio State University, Barbara Groseclose writes about eighteenth and nineteenth-century art and literature; her most recent book is British Sculpture and the Company Raj: Church Monuments and Public Statuary in Madras, Calcutta, and Bombay to 1858 (1995).
