Before there is an America, disparate bands of settlers strive to carve out an identity in a virgin land. In the west, Spanish missions use art to convert the natives to Catholicism.

From the majestic primal America, there arises the idea of landscape as God's fingerprint. Landscape painting holds deep religious and patriotic connotations.
