Author(s): Neil Harris

What was the place of the artist in a new society? How would he thrive where monarchy, aristocracy, and an established church# and those traditional patrons of painting, sculpture, and architecture# and were repudiated so vigorously? Neil Harris examines the relationships between American cultural values and American society during the formative years of American art and explores how conceptions of the artist's social role changed during those years.
