  • We are exposing the natives to the divine plan of civilization!
  • This wilderness lacks any sense of development. We will bring light and progress!

  • Hi. My name is Asher Brown Durand, and I am an American artist.
  • The Cross in the Wilderness (1844)
  • I represent God's favor by focusing on the cross!
  • This work portrays the divine ideology that will carve moral civilization out of the wilderness.
