Storyline

Andrew Graham-Dixon deplores that the Precolombian native cultures I the Americas were annihilated by the European colonists, and mostly inadvertently by epidemics the Indian cultures lacked immunity against, so even what was preserved is usually impossible to appreciate expertly. Colonial art largely aped Europe, albeit generally in the modest price class, and recorded the glory of the New World's nature, and alas its progressive demise of pristine diversity as the West was won and railroads laid the tracks for a rise to wealth heralding the Boston Tea Party conflict leading to the War of Independence. The new nation used art -foremost in the brand new capital- to pose as an equal with great powers, and to cover up injustice, especially towards the gradually chased natives. Finally at recorded the near-suicidal Civil War. Written by KGF Vissers

Graham-Dixons historic art documentaries are the best thing that happened to cultural and educational media. In a relaxed and understandable way he educates us about all kinds of art and history without ever being patronizing as some other people in his field can be. Everybody should watch this and his coverage of other countries as art of France, Russia, Scandinavia and so on. It doesn't pass a week before I scan the internet for something new from this man.
