http://schema.org/description

  • "Known in the mid-nineteenth century as the best landscape painter in the West, Robert S. Duncanson fell into obscurity for nearly a century after his death. In this first full-length biography, Joseph Ketner restores the artist to his place in the history of American art. He explores Duncanson's role as an African-American artist in American society and reveals his lasting contribution to American landscape painting. Duncanson came of age in a time of turmoil. Living and working in Cincinnati, he felt the white backlash against increasing abolitionist sentiment that prompted riots and murders in the city's black district. Even as a "freeman of color," Duncanson faced the specter of slavery daily in the markets, at the docks, and across the Ohio River from his home."
