               Coal mining and steel production, foundations of American industry, were strong inspirations for artists of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. While coal fed the furnaces of factories, homes, and steam engines, steel was used to build the factories themselves, the infrastructure of railroads, bridges, canals and skyscrapers. As the country entered World War II, steel was used to built the great ships and the machines of war, and then returned to re-build the American Dream.
