Framing America : a social history of American art

Summary: "Framing America takes an inclusive approach to American art. Along with comprehensive coverage of the canon, it expands and integrates treatment of frequently marginalized groups, while also addressing domestic arts and a range of political and social contexts. This fully revised fourth edition, reorganized in response to readers' suggestions, includes thirty-two chapters now arranged into nine parts, and available in two separate volumes; part openers featuring timelines and introductions that highlight how major events and artistic movements relate chronologically; increased coverage of the lives and work of women, African Americans, and Native Americans; new images--from a sixteenth-century print of the Spanish conquest of the Americas and a seventeenth-century embroidered altar frontal from New France, to nineteenth century American Impressionist landscape paintings and photographic portraits of San Francisco's Chinatown and Civil War battlefields; new review questions at the end of each chapter; instructor resources, including a fully revised test bank, the author's notes on using the book, links to further relevant material, and images for instructors"--
