The Anatomy of Nature:
Geology and American Landscape Painting, 1825-1875
Rebecca Bedell

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

“I unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend this book. It is an excellent piece of scholarship--thorough, well researched, richly nuanced. It presents an original and persuasive reinterpretation of ideas and images that have long been considered central to American cultural history. The chapters on Cole, Church, and Durand are full of fresh observations and fill in missing connections about the relationship between high culture, popular culture, and the burgeoning science of geology . . . There is no question that this is an important book, and a valuable addition to the study of nineteenth-century American landscape painting."--Gray Sweeney, Arizona State University
