Title

Cozy Corner

Description

Native American cultures and decorative items were very popular with nineteenth century Americans. In the 1890s, many American homes had a "cozy corner" to display oriental arts. By the early 1900s, the corner became a place to display Native American arts. The interest of the general public in Native Americans created a demand for images. U.S. artists created images showing Native Americans in their native dress.
