One small example.
It's hard to determine just what to search for in order to find examples of this
sort of thing, but I seem to have stumbled upon one. In the blurb for a book by
Rina Youngner, Art
in Industry - Pittsburgh, 1812 to 1920 we read that:
Youngner examines the transformation of the depiction
of industry in 19th century Pittsburgh from environmental nuisance to an idealized
glorification of industrial might, in both fine art and illustration.
And I'm sure
that numerous additional examples are there for the finding.
