Abstract:

The art of theorem painting on velvet and paper was fashionable in America from around 1810 to 1840, and it became part of the curricula of the schools for young ladies of the period. As a result, contemporary America is able to enjoy many fine examples of this charming art that have been preserved from those early days. This book is illustrated in color with a large number of original examples of theorem painting -- undoubtedly the largest group of theorems ever to be published in one book.
