Description
Vividly illustrated with rarely seen prints, survey photographs, zoological and botanical illustrations, patent models, and engineering diagrams, this is a survey of the vision that energized 19th-century American society, from paintings of dramatic landscapes and scenes of everyday life to the planning of scientific expeditions and the development of new technologies. In particular, it spotlights six iconic objects that inspired the country's imagination: the buffalo, the giant sequoia, and Niagara Falls, all symbols of our vast natural bounty; and the gun, the railroad, and the clock, representing all things mechanical and the purposeful use of time.
