Currier and Ives: America Imagined
Bryan F. Le Beau (au)
When Nathaniel Currier started his publishing bus. in 1834, the mass production of visual images was almost unknown. Currier and his partner, James Ives, literally changed the American landscape by mass-producing inexpensive lithographs and selling millions of copies that adorned countless homes, business, and even barns. The Currier and Ives catalog included some 7,000 works by dozens of artists, accounting for 95% of all lithographs purchased nationwide. This in-depth study of the range of Currier and Ives images places them in historical context as meaningful representations and reflections of American values, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. This repertoire of themes charted the enthusiasm and fantasies of 19th cent. Americans. Illustrations.
