Music in the Early 1800's
During the early 1800's, many different types of art began to flourish. From folk art, which the average artist could draw, to portraits, which only a skilled artist could paint. A couple famous artists at the time were: George Catlin, an artist who captured native views of America, and stuck to the roots of the country. Also, John James Audubon, who specialized in nature, particularly birds. Along with his art, he would write about the birds he saw, and put it into books, which became a success, and in turn, brought him fame. One of his most popular prints: "Birds of America" captivated readers with its large watercolor paintings, and amazing tales of the American frontier. one quote from his work goes: "I ate no butcher's meat, lived chiefly on fruits, vegetables and fish, and never drank a glass of spirits or wine until my wedding day." Overall, art in the Era of Good Feelings was very unique to America.
