In this program, Andrew Graham-Dixon shows the role of 19th- and 20th-century artists in helping America to establish its own culture. He goes to Manhattan to examine the grimy world of John Sloan and George Bellows, to Massachusetts for a fresh take on Norman Rockwell, and to Chicago for a look at the work of Louis Sullivan. Graham-Dixon explains how the Great Depression affected Edward Hopper and Arshile Gorky and inspired America's first internationally acclaimed art movement - Abstract Expressionism. He visits Jackson Pollock's Long Island studio before flying across America to take in Mark Rothko's incredible chapel in Houston, Texas.
