Colonial American Portraiture






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Cambridge University Press
Summary: In this new and provocative study, the renowned art scholar Wayne Craven examines early American portraiture not just in terms of the genius of particular artists, but as a complex expression of society and the individual. Historians of American art have long identified the evolution of styles in early portraits; Professor Craven asks why those styles developed as they did, looking beyond the formal boundaries of tra...ditional art history and studying the effect of religious, social, economic and political forces on art and the growth of arts patronage in early America. The author identifies the Protestant perspective: the compatibility of Protestant spiritualism with intensely secular motivations. In Professor Craven's view, the rich variety of early portraits demonstrates how Americans moved away from the strict theology of Puritanism, becoming Materialists and determined followers of the Protestant ethic.

Craven, Wayne is the author of Colonial American Portraiture, published 1986 under ISBN 9780521320443 and 0521320445. Eight Colonial American Portraiture textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, seven used from the cheapest price of $13.22, or buy new starting at $99.22.
