  • Gloria Swanson photograph by Nickolas Muray 1925Two Women by George Wesley Bellows 1924 George Marvin and his Daughter by James Ormsbee Chapin 1926This book is an exhilarating examination of the developments in American art during the 1920 s In many ways this is the era when the U.S became a world power and Europe was beginning its descent It was a time when the U.S established its uniqueness in the world of art Prior to the 1920 s there were some significant artists in the U.S like Winslow Home [...]


  • American Modernism Aftermath of World War IUp to the time of World War I, that unimaginable collision that circled the globe, the mood in America was business as usual , another way of stating that people were focused on that ubiquitous goal, the American Dream, in a country that was safe from any interference in the forward stride of that dream But the Great War happened and part of the shock of the aftermath that all was indeed tenuous resulted in that devil may care Jazz Age if life is so unp [...]
