American Goddess

Early allegorical images of America were born in the mind of Europe. Around the Revolution, America began taking charge of its symbols. To shed its native identity and connect to the “civilized” world, artists reached into the iconographic heritage of classical humanism. In the European tradition of personifying nations as pseudo-classical goddesses, America embraced Columbia, which had begun appearing in magazines in 1738. Columbia referred to place, but another goddess referred to principle: Liberty.
