9780821413425: Art and Empire: The Politics of Ethnicity in the United States Capitol, 1815–1860 (Perspective On Art & Architect)

The subject matter and iconography of much of the art in the U.S. Capitol forms a remarkably coherent program of the early course of North American empire, from discovery and settlement to the national development and westward expansion that necessitated the subjugation of the indigenous peoples.

In Art and Empire, Vivien Green Fryd's revealing cultural and political interpretation of the portraits, reliefs, allegories, and historical paintings commissioned for the U.S. Capitol, the reader is given an enhanced appreciation for the racial and ethnic implications of these works.

This latest contribution to the United States Capitol Historical Society's Perspectives on the Art and Architectural History of the United States Capitol series provides an affordable and accessible insight into one of our most visited, viewed, and revered national buildings. Professor Fryd demonstrates how the politics of our history is written in stone and painted on the walls of these hallowed halls.

Review:

Art and Empire is an insightful and long-overdue account ... [that] should be read not only by those interested in antebellum American culture but by anyone interested in the wider problem of official art in modern society.”

-- Art Bulletin

Art and Empire is a fine cultural history, well researched, well illustrated, and illuminating.”

-- The Journal of American History
