Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Boime (art history, UCLA) reveals in the expansive vistas of Cole, Church, Bierstadt, Moran, and others a shared perspective--a visual trajectory from the heights to a scenic panorama below. This elevated view, he argues, not only united the major movements of 19th-century landscape painting but also linked them inescapably to the political and social tenets of Manifest Destiny. With eight color, 45 b&w illustrations. 91/4x61/4 Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
