Charleston renaissance

DEFINITION

A term referencing the years 1915 to 1940, citizens of Charleston, South Carolina focused on revitalizing their city from its economic and cultural stagnation after the Civil War. Local artists became very active by using their greatest assets---"beauty, tradition and romance"--- to honor the past and give direction to the future. Artists and other civic leaders formed The Southern Art League in 1921 in Charleston to promote art and artist of the region. Prominent as leading Charleston Renaissance artists were Elizabeth O'Neill Varner, Alfred Hutty, Alice Ravenel Huger Smith and Anna Heyward Taylor. Source: Martha R.
