American Progress
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
The memory of John Gast's career as an artist depends, in great measure, upon one painting, American Progress, painted circa 1872-1873, exalting the doctrine of Manifest Destiny in the movement Westward by the American people. This painting of a monumental allegorical figure of a white-gowned woman symbolizing Progress, is used in many college and university courses on American art and history because it so graphically expresses this 19th Century belief.
