Chapter 27: Nation Building in the Americas and Australia
1770 to 1914

41: Wed, Feb 6, 2019

Please post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:

Art in the colonies responded to three complex realities. Native Art was often officially suppressed but nevertheless survived, preserving the original culture to some extent. The art of the colonists mimicked the art of the European continent, similarily preserving their culture of origin for the colonists. But it was also impossible to completely suppress a fusion of both impulses as all members of the colonies sought to define their new identities as residents of the New World (including Australia) and to record their experiences there.

Examine the paintings below. What do they tell you about the people portrayed? How might the origin or training of the painter affect how he portrays his subject?
