This is the definitive study of one of America's major artists and inventors, Samuel F.B. Morse (1791-1872). It covers his prodigious achievements in painting and technology, his passionate cultural ambitions, and his key role in the historic development of American art. The book imaginatively combines intellectual biography with interpretation of more than one hundred pictures. Three chapters consider Morse's most extraordinary artistic achievements: The House of Representatives, The Gallery of the Louvre, and The National Academy of Design. In a final chapter on the electromagnetic telegraph, an invention that imprinted his name on our language, there is a special discussion of the conceptual relationship between artistic and mechanical inventions

Lectures on the affinity of painting with the other fine arts by Samuel Finley Breese Morse( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first publication of a series of lectures delivered by the 19th-century American painter to the New York Athenaeum in 1826, soon after he became president of the National Academy of Design. The four lectures marked an important step in the development of the artistic profession in the United States. Because Morse's audience was more familiar with literature and science than with painting, his strategy in these lectures was to explain the principles of painting, rather than the technicalities, by comparing them with the principles of other arts

The American inventor Samuel Morse (1791–1872) spent decades fighting to be recognised for his key role in devising the electromagnetic telegraph. While he will always be remembered in the history of telecommunications, and for co-developing the code which bears his name, Morse started out as a painter and also involved himself in matters of politics over the course of his career. Published in 1914, this two-volume collection of personal papers was edited by his son, who provides helpful commentary throughout, illuminating the struggles and successes of a remarkable life. Volume 2 begins with Morse's return voyage to the United States; following a conversation with a fellow passenger regarding electromagnetism, Morse began to develop the concept of the single-wire telegraph. The rest of the volume gives much personal background to the development of the invention and particularly to Morse's efforts to gain the recognition he believed he deserved
