This is a broad intellectual and cultural study of a main theme in 19th-century American art - landscape painting. It examines the ways - popular, philosophical, ethical and aesthetic - in which Americans of that period saw their landscape, with emphasis on the importance of science, spiritualism, evangelism, the sublime and transcendentalism. This edition is updated with a new preface. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
