Edwin Howland Blashfield: Master American Muralist

By Mina Rieur Weiner (Editor)

Edwin Howland Blashfield (1848–1936) rose to prominence as a muralist during the “American Renaissance,” the period between the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and the United States’ entry into World War I.

New scholarship highlights Blashfield’s contributions to the beauty of civic spaces and his lasting influence on public art in America.
