Exhibitions, Collecting, and International Trends
This chapter begins by showing a New England expatriate and a Confederate penitent that address the newly freed slaves. It also explains the fair years in Louisville. It discusses R. J. Menefee's death, the re-interment of Matthew Harris Jouett, and the creation of the Jouett revival. Samuel Woodson Price recalls “old masters of the Bluegrass.” In addition, a Kentucky student of Frank Duveneck painted Louisville's idyllic poet, Madison Cawein. Once photography was introduced, an intervening lens was inserted between artist and sitter, transforming the artist's role into that of a mirror. What truly illuminates the brief backward glance is the impressive array of artists working in Kentucky and the Ohio River Valley, from whose work we may construct diverse aesthetic viewpoints.
