Summary
George Caleb Bingham, who earned the sobriquet of "the Missouri artist," evolved from a locally known portrait painter to an artist of national renown. His letters illuminate the complex personality of a man actively involved in the political, social, and cultural life of nineteenth-century America -- an eyewitness to westward expansion, a firsthand observer of river and rail commerce, and a participant in the Civil War
