Abstract :
Charts the common concerns and eventual divergence in aims and practices of the chromolithograph industry and art museums which reveal much about how and why various kinds of visual art became differentiated. Home and museum were ideologically charged environments where the definition and uses of art, especially its bearing on social and psychological turbulences involved in industrialization, were contested and reshaped. By the early 20th c., museums had gained power to define 'high' art, and art in the home was consigned to other classifications and accorded lower status. ;
