Abstract:

This series, The West of the Imagination, focuses on the illustrators, painters, and photographers of the American West, offering a stunning overview of their histories, actions, and especially their images. These artists created many Wests, underscoring the importance of the myth of the West in American history. Out of the awesome Western landscape and historic experience, the West lives on in the hearts of Americans. In the first installment, The Romantic Horizon, viewers follow the path of Lewis and Clark, revealing the new lands through the eyes of artist-explorers George Catlin, Karl Bodmer, and Alfred Jacob Miller. Canvas and notebook in hand, they scoured the wilderness and returned East with the first glimpses of the frontier that would soon capture the world's imagination.
