Wall portrayed theenvironmental changes caused by industrial growth. By the last quarterof the century, however, national weekly magazines illustratedPittsburgh's smoking industrial complexes as symbols of industrial mightpopulated by stoic, working-class heroes working with fire. Commercialartists created graphic images of modern technology for topographicprints, advertising, and national magazines that helped shape America'sperception of Pittsburgh as both an industrial giant and the "City ofthe Future."Depictions in Harper's Weekly and Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaperrenderings of the railroad strike of 1877 and the Homestead strike of1892, and Joseph Stella's and Lewis Hine's portrayals of mill workersfor the Pittsburgh Survey in the early twentieth century focused onindustrial workers as angry strikers and as immigrants struggling toearn a living.It was not until the end of the century that industry became acceptablein high art, as the Carnegie Institute brought European art and artiststo Pittsburgh with its yearly International exhibits and Aaron Gorsondiscovered the dramatic effect of steel mills at night.Industry in Art presents an in-depth analysis of how sociologicalelements affected both artists and imagery. As perceptions of industrychanged over time, artists reflected and shaped America's attitudestoward industry and labor in the nineteenth century.
