This chapter argues that magazines served as a significant medium for the widespread distribution of American art. It adds that as periodicals used commissioned original artworks, magazines encouraged the production of unique American art. This chapter further claims that artists and engravers helped create a diverse artistic environment in magazines because they managed to adapt their artistic skills to numerous genres and media.
