Another site from my friend Jan, the prof. Linda K.

Nast, New Orleans & Degas
http://www.homeworkcentral.com/Top8/files.htp?fileid=3D65896&use=3Dhc

The work of the illustrious cartoonist of Harper's Weekly is exhibited =
in
this growing collection about Thomas Nast. The Nast pages are a feature =
of
Harp Week, the fabulous online collection of decades of issues of =
Harper's
Weekly, which are a prime example of how the Internet can bring history =
and
its tangible assets to students. The mini-section called "Interactivity
Among Thomas Nast, New Orleans and Edgar Degas" is a confection of art =
and
history, which includes the explanation that one of Nast's famous =
anti-Tweed
cartoons made a major contribution to Degas' classic painting the =
"Cotton
Office." Also here we learn that in 1867, Nast, a born multimediaist,
created the Grand Caricaturama, a presentation of 33 paintings each 8 =
feet
high. As seated audiences watched in delight, the pictures were moved =
across
the stage, accompanied by a spoken narration and relevant piano pieces. =
Now
we do that with clicks and digital audio.
