The period from 1800 to 1850 in America encompassed an art style of distinct features which I feature in my collection of antique fine arts. It was a period of romantic expression. In painting portraiture was foremost, along with landscape painting, still- life painting, minature portraits and later genre or scenes of every day life. Sculpture emerged as a serious art form with the neo-classic school. In the graphic arts printmaking developed further with reproduction of paintings in steel engravings, and the development of lithography. Many examples of these works of fine art are shown in the following inventory of Aileen Minor Antiques.
