In the early to mid-nineteenth century, images of the American landscape were translated and reproduced in large numbers in a variety of media, providing an eager audience with examples of patriotic views and scenes of natural wonders. In this book, author Nancy Seigel investigates the art of Thomas Cole as representative of this process and examines the means by which an 1827 drawing by the artist of a scene in the Allegheny Mountains was transformed into a painting, engraved copies, and adorned imported Staffordshire ceramics designed to appeal specifically to an American audience.
