Summary
Tracing the transformation of the colonies into nationhood between the 1760s and the Civil War, this volume's classic paintings from America reveal the traits, ideals and ambitions of a young people. Early Federal portraits, serene landscapes and genre paintings document an ever-expanding range of issues, including the impact that industrial issues had in altering the American landscape.
