The first study of Louis Prang, who in the late 1800s brought artistic sensitivity to the masses producing expensive museum-livel chromo-art copies for the home. Over shadowed by Currier and Ives, Prang introduced Art Education into the American Public Schools and developed the needed instruction books and supplies.
