Transcendentalism is called the American Renaissance, it followed the first Industrial Revolution and had many great leaders that pioneered it.

The period of Transcendentalism grew during the 1800s and was led by people such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Nathaniel Hawthorne primarily, though Hawthorne was very involved in Romanticism.

An example of where this can be seen within his work is in one of his most prominent pieces of artwork ‘The Persistent of Memory’. This image depicts a watch flopping over what appears to be a strange, paled-coloured rock.

This characteristic is what makes Warhol 's paintings so attractive to the public.
