I can't state it's case better than the book description. In my mind now the exhibition is a blur; the events of 9/11 later that year diminished my enthusiasm probably never to return to what it was at the time of the show.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy faces multiple challenges in the new millennium. I can't state it's case better than the book description.

Empire City, the Great Emporium, and the Empress City of the West .

Still very much a work in progress, New York became both an international economic and cultural center: it was transformed into what contemporary observers variously termed the Empire City, the Great Emporium, and the Empress City of the West. The cultural component of this transformation was as significant as its economic aspect. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read.

Guess what, friends? .......... this is another one of those truly exceptional books, the type of which we never see enough. ART and the EMPIRE CITY, New York 1825-1861 goes way beyond the bounds of "bookdom" - and instead becomes an extraordinary adventure in exploring the growth of America's largest city - and how it came to dominate the Arts, Sciences, and Industry from the period beginning with the opening of the Erie canal - and culminating with the advent of the Civil War.

Edited by Catherine Hoover Voorsanger and John K. Howat - this book was written by a stellar panel of experts to accompany the Metropolitan Museum's breathtaking exhibition in 2000. Each chapter is a masterful essay - covering the entire social, political, and economic development of every aspect of art, industry, commerce, social mores, fashion, entertainment - and more!

Among the topics presented, the following are traced in great depth: Urbanity in Antebellum New York, early Art Exhibitions, private and public Collectors and their Collections, Painting - including local and world influences, Sculpture - and it's gradual acceptance in America, Architects and Architecture, Printmaking, early Photography, Ladies and Men's Fashion, Furniture and Cabinetmaking, Glass and Ceramics, Silver and precious metals.

New York is contrasted with other great cities - both in America and Europe - and the effect that they had on each other.

This book is written with intelligence and respect for the reader. The narrative is almost as good as living through the entire period, and I found that each time I sat down to read another chapter - it was like taking a small vacation and being assimilated into the best that the period had to offer.

The illustrations are superb, gleaned from multiple Museum and Private Collections. In addition to some old favorites, there are quite a number of previously unpublished items to whet our appetites!

This is an impressively large book encompassing 636 pages. If you love American Art and History - you will LOVE this book. It stands alone in it's category - and should be a must for the collector of Nineteenth Century American Art & Antiques.

Excellent resource for those restoring a house and decorating with period furniture! Very informative! Window into the great city of New York during this period!

An interesting story of the art world in NYC in the years leading up to the Civil War. It describes some sociological issues which remain relevant to our times.
