John Gast's "American Progress"
After looking at durand's "progress", I was reminded of John Gast's "American Progress" where I've interpreted an angelic figure leading technology and enlightenment ideals to the west, an area lacking technological advancement or social refinement. I think themes from our class might also be present due to the portrayal of nature on both the enlightened and "non-enlightened" sides of the picture.
