 Gallery - The 1870s
Drawings tended towards realism in the 1870s, unless they were intended to be comical -- and even then, hardly anybody smiled (much like the photographs taken last century -- everyone looks exceptionally solemn, or maybe it just hurt to smile for as long as it took to capture the photo).
Howard Pyle has two contrasting styles in the 1870s: the first conforms to the detailed realism of its time, while the second is a complete departure from that.

 Artworks by Eyre Crowe, 1870s
These paintings were easily comprehended by members of the public, could be engraved and were often reprinted in newspapers and magazines, and were generally small enough to fit into the homes of the middle class merchants and professionals who increasingly formed the market for contemporary art.
Although works of 'historical anecdote' were similar in style and composition to those on contemporary themes, and painted largely by the same artists, the modern paintings became increasingly popular both with the public and with the painters themselves.
It was in the 1870s that 'social realist' paintings showing the harsher sides of life for the poor and disposessed enjoyed a brief flowering of interest, largely through the illustrations in The Graphic magazine (founded 1869) and the paintings of its employees Luke Fildes, Herbert von Herkomer and Frank Holl.

 The National Game - Baseball and American Culture
By the 1870s the baseball began to take on the look of the modern ball, shrinking to its present size of 9 to 9 * inches in circumference and 5 to 5 * ounces in weight from the softer, larger ball used earlier in the century.
The 1870s baseball consisted of a small core of hard rubber, surrounded with tightly wrapped wool and covered with two carefully stitched figure-eight pieces of horsehide, which gave the ball its distinctive look.

 History of 1870s Bustles
During the late 1850s and 1860s, women of fashion had worn hoop skirts or crinolines from three to six feet in diameter under their skirts.
Despite the variety of looks, bustles from the early 1870s usually were shallow, covered the sides and back, and ended at the bottom of the hips.
This style bustle, advertised here as being able to support the weight of heavy winter skirts, replaced the softer, weaker bustles of the 1870s.

 Bicoastal Artists of the 1870s; essay by Ann Harlow   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The 1870s were not only a very active period in American art, but also a transitional one.
Somewhat like the 1980s, the 1870s were an artistically eclectic decade during which a lively art market helped to inspire a high degree of public interest, which in turn supported those artists who met with public favor, especially those who "kept up" with what was new in art.
During the 1870s American artists, especially those who traveled a great deal, readily borrowed various elements of technique, composition, and motif -- not just from France but from Germany, Belgium, Holland and England; not just from their contemporaries but from the old masters; and not just from Europe but from their fellow Americans.

 1870s, 1880s.html
By the later phase of Dickinson's writing life, space and lineation have become the primary forms of punctuation, and marks -- such as "dashes" and "commas" -- are much less commonly used.
The manuscripts of the 1870s and 1880s also show Dickinson's great interest in the ways words and space can work as images, which Marta Werner,in Open Folios, characterizes in the most radical terms as "a shift from the lexical toward the visual" (23).
In the scene of the 1870s and 1880s, therefore, a "word painting" constitutes the careful spatial layout of words and space, both of which are conceived as sound-images that help to make poetic meaning.
