During the period under study, the landscape genre carried an exaggerated weight of meaning for the collective national identity, and artists wrestled with its formal, representational, and expressive issues. Miller (art history, Washington U.) studies why landscape painting held such a key place in American art and also what its role was in the formation of cultural identity.
