Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

American Art in the Yale University Art Gallery

€ 65.95

The American experience, from its colonial beginnings to the modern age, has captured the imagination of all Americans, including its artists. This richly illustrated book explores works from the renowned collections of American paintings, decorative arts, prints, and photographs at the Yale University Art Gallery and creates a vivid portrait of a young country defining itself culturally, politically, and geographically.Distinguished scholars shed new light on American history by examining some of the most familiar and revered objects in American art: paintings by Trumbull, Peale, Copley, Eakins, Church, and Homer; silver by Revere and Tiffany; furniture by Roux and Connelly; and photographs by Muybridge, among others. The authors discuss how issues of cultural heritage, patriotism, politics, and exploration shaped America's art, as well as its attitudes and traditions.
