Get Thee to the Library

No pics yet, just wanted to comment on a promising book I picked up at the Library today.  "The Romantic West" with an awesome painting on the cover (one of my favorites that I found on wikipedia several months back) "The Wreck of the 'Hope'" by Caspar David Freidrich.

Anyway, the whole book started with the end of the French revolution, and how the middle class, industrialization, and get this "loose credit" affected portraiture.  I'm taking notes for Figure Drawing this Wednesday.
