Sample Text
Despite the overwhelming influence of European, mostly English, styles in art during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the tradition of the itinerant, self-trained artist continued. These less sophisticated artists provided a good source for patronage by less-affluent Americans who nonetheless wanted to demonstrate their refinement and good taste by commissioning art. Pockets of provincial, naïve art persisted through the nineteenth century in the form of segregated religious or Utopian communities, isolated frontier regions, and newly settled regions in the west.
