About this title

Synopsis:

500 Years of Life in America tells the epic story of America through drawings--works in pen, pencil, charcoal, crayon, pastel, gouache, and watercolor. Drawings have a special importance because they are one-of-a-kind, on-the-spot, eyewitness documents. The drawings included here are not only sophisticated works by such renowned artists as John Singleton Copley, John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, Frederic Remington and Ben Shahn, but also works by relatively untrained observers who were eager to record significant events and experiences before they faded from memory. With wit and with many engaging anecdotes, the eminent author and art historian Marshal B. Davidson skillfully places the drawings in historical context, presenting the American saga in one broad and colorful panorama.
