  • "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. The 6th installment, Enduring Dreams, examines how the West has accommodated to change while remaining a mythical land of freedom and possibility. Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood have given way to Native American artists. Indians--once the subjects of painting--have become its practitioners. So the myth regenerates itself and the American consciousness and the American dream are reshaped and redefined."@en
