A Vast, Prosperous Continent

We will take a look at how The Americas are portrayed by artists. What kind of land is it? What are its people like? Who are the people indigenous to the land? Who were the people who migrated to the continent? What are the different cultures and languages that exist here?

We will look at the natural landscape of the continent as well as the cultures that exist here. How does the landscape influence the art? What can we learn about the continent from the art?
