  • "Épisode 3 sur 8 d'une série sur l'histoire de l'architecture et des arts visuels aux États-Unis, commentée par l'historien et critique Robert Hughes. Du territoire américain apparait l'idée du paysage perçu comme l'empreinte de Dieu. La peinture paysagiste acquiert des connotations profondément religieuses et patriotiques. Bientôt, la croyance dans la "Destinée manifeste" s'incarne dans l'art (Hudson River School). Voyageant depuis Yellowstone jusque dans la vallée de l'Hudson, Hughes explore l'oeuvre des peintres Albert Bierstadt, John James Audubon, Frederic Church, Frederic Remington et Thomas Cole. Il y décèle les impulsions contradictoires de la révérence pour la terre mais aussi de sa domination et de la création du mythe de l'Ouest alors que la frontière disparait, vidée de ses Premières Nations."

  • "Épisode 7 sur 8 d'une série sur l'histoire de l'architecture et des arts visuels aux États-Unis, commentée par l'historien et critique Robert Hughes. La puissance américaine est sans rivale après 1945 et ses artistes rompent avec le passé. Hughes décrit l'impact d'Hiroshima sur l'art, raconte le développement de l'expressionnisme abstrait et la vie de Jackson Pollock et explore la réaction à la nouvelle culture de consommation, d'artistes aussi disparates que James Rosenquist, Claes Oldenburg, Joseph Cornell, Andy Warhol et Jasper Johns. Quand des conflits (Vietnam, etc.) commencent à diviser la nation, les images médiatiques surpassent en impact visuel tout ce que les artistes peuvent imaginer ou créer."

  • "Épisode 6 sur 8 d'une série sur l'histoire de l'architecture et des arts visuels aux États-Unis. Les images mythiques des décades 1920 et 1930 sont autant urbaines que les gratte-ciels de New York et autant rurales que les paysages idéalisés des peintres régionalistes tel Thomas Hart Benton. Isamu Naguchi, Lewis Hine et les artistes subventionnés de la WPA (Works Progress Administration) instituée par Roosevelt, célèbrent l'héroïsme du travailleur. Jacob Lawrence illustre la migration d'un million de Noirs vers les villes du Nord et certains projets ambitieux du New Deal, tel le barrage Hoover, projetent l'idée de confiance en soi malgré les temps durs. Questionnement sur la véritable Amérique moderne - l'isolement humain peint par Edward Hopper, ou bien la vitalité jazzy de Stuart Davis? Commentaires de l'historien et critique Robert Hughes."

  • "An eight part series presenting American history through its visual art, painting, sculpture, architecture and monuments. In this third segment as majestic primal America fosters the idea of landscape as God's fingerprint, landscape painting holds deep religious and patriotic connotations. Soon, the belief in Manifest Destiny is embodied in art. Traveling from Yellowstone to the Hudson Valley, Hughes explores the artists Thomas Cole, John Audubon, Albert Bierstadt, John Gast, Currier & Ives, Emanuel Leutze, George Catlin, Frederick Church, Frederic Remington, Thomas Noran and William Jackson. In their work he finds the conflicting impulses to worship the land and to conquer it, to create a myth of the West just as the frontier is closing."@en
