What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Citizen Spectator lifts a curtain to expose the aesthetic, economic, and political spaces—from museums to markets, the street to the statehouse—where Americans practiced a politics of visual discernment. Absorbing and arresting as an illusionistic painting, Bellion's book brilliantly reveals how new media challenged inherited ideologies and provides novel horizons and vanishing points for the history of American art, culture, and politics.—Eric Slauter, University of Chicago
