Summary

This overview of the "sister arts" of the nineteenth century by younger scholars in art history, literature, and American studies presents a startling array of perspectives on the fundamental role played by images in culture and society. Drawing on the latest thinking about developments in literary theory and cultural studies, the contributors situate paintings, sculpture, monument art, and literary images within a variety of cultural contexts. A wide range of figures are reassessed, including the painters Charles Wilson Peale, George Caleb Bingham, and Mary Cassatt, and such writers as James Fenimore Cooper, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau.
