About this event:

Gardens, Manners, and William Jay: Savannah's Romantic Spirit
Dr. Christopher E. Hendricks, The Department of History

In conjunction with the Telfair Academy’s exhibit, Romantic Spirits: Nineteenth-Century Paintings from the Johnson Collection, Early American historian Christopher E. Hendricks will examine how this exciting age reshaped Savannah’s landscape, society, and architecture. With the dawn of the nineteenth century, the city of Savannah found itself on the cusp of great change as it developed from a provincial colonial capital to a thriving and nationally important port city. Accompanying this shift was an equally exciting revolution in culture as Americans joined their European cousins in revolting against the rationality of the eighteenth-century in favor of emotional responses to experiences as they expressed themselves through literature, music, and the visual arts.
