Based on a major exhibition organized by the (copublisher) Baltimore Museum of Art, this heavily illustrated (216 reproductions, many in color) volume investigates the multifaceted impact of classical political, intellectual, and aesthetic values on early 19th-century American culture through a close examination of some 225 representative objects from the period, including paintings, sculpture, furniture, silver, base metals, glass, ceramics, textiles, and printed materials. The text of the volume delves into the symbolic and material significance of classicism in American life, the adaptation of antique forms and motifs by American craftsmen and consumers, and the vernacularization of classicism. 9.5x12" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
