- In the early years of the Republic, more artistic activity took place in North Carolina than has previously been acknowledged by scholars. Itinerant artists used a variety of techniques to overcome obstacles in the marketplace in early North Carolina. Advertisements reveal their careful strategies to maximize profit and reduce risk. In addition to itinerants, North Carolinians demanded portraiture from some of the best known artists of the day, as well as public art to bolster civic pride.
