This comprehensive guide to the early art and artists of Ohio is a compendium of hard-to-find information. The result of more than twelve years of research in community archives, newspapers, business directories, census returns, genealogical records, and manuscripts, Artists in Ohio, 1787-1900 is the most ambitious and complete attempt ever made to document the states artistic origins and growth. The authors have uncovered and remedied innumerable gaps and errors in standard reference works. They have also brought to light new information about thousands of forgotten men and women, once well-known in their communities, who achieved success in either the fine arts or the decorative and practical arts of photography, ornamental penmanship, tombstone carving, china painting, illustrating, cartooning, and the execution of panoramas and theatrical scenery.
