After the Civil War, artists and writers from Boston faced a question that haunted America: what’s next? For cultural leaders like Charles Eliot Norton and Isabella Stewart Gardner, Reconstruction left them feeling directionless and betrayed. Mark Rennella recounts how these “Boston Cosmopolitans” shunned the Whig narrative of history and researched Europe’s long past to discover and share examples of civil society shaped by high ideals.
