The End of Landscape in Nineteenth-Century America, Hardback Book

The End of Landscape in Nineteenth-Century America Hardback

Description

The End of Landscape in Nineteenth-Century America examines the dissolution of landscape painting in the late nineteenth-century United States.

Maggie M. Cao explores the pictorial practices that challenged, mourned, or revised the conventions of landscape painting, a major cultural project for nineteenth-century Americans.

Through rich analysis of artworks at the genre's unsettling limits-landscapes that self-destruct, masquerade as currency, or even take flight-Cao shows that experiments in landscape played a crucial role in the American encounter with modernity.

Landscape is the genre through which American art most urgently sought to come to terms with the modern world.
