From the Potomac to the Gulf, artists have been developing within the South even sooner than it was once famous as a area. The South has contributed to America's cultural historical past with works as varied as Benjamin Henry Latrobe's architectural plans for the nation's Capitol, the wares of the Newcomb Pottery, and Richard Clague's tonalist Louisiana bayou scenes. This finished quantity exhibits how, during the many years and centuries, the artwork of the South elevated from mimetic portraiture to classy responses to nationwide and overseas activities. The essays deal with old and present developments within the visible arts and structure, significant collections and associations, and biographies of artists themselves. As best specialists at the region's artists and their paintings, editors Judith H. Bonner and Estill Curtis Pennington body the volume's contributions with insightful assessment essays at the visible arts and structure within the American South.
