Summary "In the 45 years between the death of Abraham Lincoln in 1865 and the death of Mark Twain in 1910, America came into its own as an economic and political power ... and, just as importantly, as an artistic force, which is the object of this new film by Michael Maglaras. In painting, in literature, and in sculpture, no period in the history of America was more fertile or more meaningful, and therefore more relevant to Americans today, than the American Gilded Age. America Rising features the work of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Alfred Stieglitz, Maurice Prendergast, and Mary Cassatt, and ends with Childe Hassam's American flag series and John Singer Sargent's anti-war statement, Gassed. Using more than 100 American works of art, as well as rare film footage of the era, such as the only known footage of Mark Twain, Michael Maglaras tells the story of the birth of the "grasping, growing, economic power" that was the America of the Gilded Age ... an age when the confidence of our outlook was matched by the monumentality of our art"--Container
