Land & Landscape: Views of America's History and Culture. From the Series America Past and Present. Study Guide.
Lewis, Tony
This study guide examines the history of American landscape painting and photography from the early 19th century to the present. It is designed to be used as a student supplement for U. S. history curriculum. Included are color reproductions of 15 works of art from the permanent collections of the National Museum of American Art. These art works are discussed and used as a focus for the lessons which are organized into four units. The units are: (1) "The Early Years"; (2) "Federalism to Jacksonian Democracy"; (3) "Artist-Explorers"; and (4) "Nature Versus 'Progress.'" An "Epilogue" discusses "Today's American Landscape." The document concludes with a glossary, selected bibliography, biographies of artists, and a list of illustrations. (NP)
