Landscape painting in the United States is described and pictured here with one hundred and forty full-page illustrations, in the whole range of its development from the early European models and American primitives to the contemporary painters of an American landscape of steel and concrete. The paintings are explained in relation to their English, German, Italian, and French influences and also to such spectacular devices as the panorama exhibited in St. Louis that unfolded before the onlooker's gaze the whole length of the Mississippi. Above all they are related to the settlement of the American continent with its European sources of men and artistic values that were to be transformed for good and ill in the new, wide, pioneering spaces.
