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. Works by John Singleton Copley, Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Cole, Elihu Vedder, Jasper Cropsey, Horatio Greenough, Hiram Powers, Samuel Colman and others are also shown.
