THE COLUMBUS OF THE WOODS: DANIEL BOONE AND THE TYPOLOGY OF MANIFEST DESTINY. J. Gray Sweeney. Washington University Gallery of Art, Saint Louis, 1992. 100 pp. with 55 ills. (4 col.). 28 x 22 cm. LC 91-67237 ISBN 0936316144 In English.
An extensive study of the evolution of the image of Daniel Boone (1734-1820) in 19th-century American art, this scholarly catalogue presents more than 30 paintings, prints and sculptures, many of them idealized depictions of the frontier hero as the agent of a divinely mandated westward expansion. The ten-part text includes an introductory discussion of the historical basis for the "pathfinder" legend and substantial essays individually analyzing the social, political and artistic issues reflected in major paintings of Boone by Chester Harding, Thomas Cole, William Ranney, George Caleb Bingham, Carl Wimar and Emanuel Leutze.
