Film Description: The exciting and compelling story covers “America’s Renaissance,” the tremendous outpouring of artistic endeavor that occurred during the time between Abraham Lincoln’s death in 1865 and the death of Mark Twain in 1910. More than 90 high-definition examples of art are shown, including works by John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, Alfred Stieglitz, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens, plus the recently discovered, only known film footage of Twain, taken in 1909.
