Largely ignored by art historians because of her status as a graphic artist and as an employee of famous male publishers, Palmer s work was nonetheless a staple in nineteenth-century culture. Palmer was interested in recording all subjects that made up American life: her images of railroads, clipper ships, New York City, Civil War battle scenes, pictures of domestic bliss, and vistas of the newly opened West. The first full-length biography of Palmer s life and work, as well as the first illustrated, annotated catalog of her drawings and prints, including a number of works that are new to the public and to scholars, Rubinstein s book shines a spotlight on this accomplished artist, arguing for her long overdue recognition as a pioneer in the history of women artists."--from front jacket"@en ;
