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 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 exciting and enlightening look at America through the eyes of its most creative citizens.


For the viewer, this film is a tour de force...Brilliantly conceived…A vibrant, fresh set of rarely seen images. --Richard Friswell, Managing Editor, ARTES Magazine
