Editorial Reviews

Review

Art and Empire is an insightful and long-overdue account ... [that] should be read not only by those interested in antebellum American culture but by anyone interested in the wider problem of official art in modern society.”

-- Art Bulletin


Art and Empire is a fine cultural history, well researched, well illustrated, and illuminating.”

-- The Journal of American History

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of us don't think twice about the statues and paintings that bombard us as we tour our nation's capital. It's all just pretty decorations and part of the scenery to us. Little do you know there were dozens of committee meetings, rejected and revised proposals, serious ethical compromises and a lot of politics going on behind every single statue, fountain, monument and decoration. This may look like a dry and scholarly book, but it actually reads quite easily and pullsyou in. Have a go!
