Product Description

America Rising: The Arts of the Gilded Age tells the story of the painting, the sculpture, the music, and the literature of America s renaissance...the tremendous outpouring of artistic endeavor that occurred between the death of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 and the death of Mark Twain in 1910. Employing more than 90 paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptural works, by such important America artists as John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Alfred Stieglitz, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens, writer/director Michael Maglaras tells the story of the rising of American society through the voices of some of its most creative spirits. Included in this film is recently discovered film footage (the only known footage) of Mark Twain taken in 1909. Michael Maglaras has been hailed as a virtuoso filmmaker (Peggy Parsons, Director of Film, National Gallery of Art). You will not want to miss America Rising: The Arts of the Gilded Age ...an exciting and enlightening look at America through the eyes of its most creative citizens.

About the Director

In ten years of filmmaking, and by employing a concept which he originated -- the idea of an essay in film -- director Michael Maglaras has asked us to stop, look, appreciate, and recognize the importance of our collective American cultural life through films about artists as diverse as Marsden Hartley, John Marin and Lynd Ward, and events such as the world-changing 1913 Armory Show, the Works Progress Administration of the Great Depression and, now, America's Gilded Age, with his seventh film, featuring the painting, sculpture, literature, and music of America's Renaissance.
