The paper compares the paintings "Pocahontas" by Simon van de Passe and "'Liberty Displaying the Arts and Science" by Samuel Jennings in order to illustrate how the two artists portray the women of America. The paper shows how these two works mirror how American women were devalued in society, and whose most important job was marriage and motherhood, with little else to fulfill or nurture them. The paper points out that both women are depicted in detail, but the detail of their surroundings is more important. The paper explains that this mirrors the status of women who were of lesser importance than their families and husbands.
