(p.39) Chapter Three Travel to Europe and Sallie
Thomas Nast

Fiona Deans Halloran

University of North Carolina Press

As Thomas Nast absorbed politics in his neighborhood, at work, and abroad, he also, between 1859 and 1861, embraced adulthood. This chapter discusses how his travel to Europe to study art provided him with a window into the workings of the land he left as a child. When he returned to New York, Nast joined Harper's Weekly as an adult, an artist, and a world traveler. In 1859, Nast met the woman he would marry, Sarah Edwards. His courtship of Sarah, whom he called Sallie, began in the summer of 1859 and continued until his return to New York from Europe in 1861.
