This chapter presents an excerpt from the 1930 book Revolt in the Arts edited by Oliver Saylor, which describes George Gershwin as a composer in the Machine Age. The book suggested that the Machine Age and jazz has influenced Gershwin's original creation or work art. This is particularly applicable to his Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris.

Keywords:   George Gershwin, Revolt in the Arts, Oliver Saylor, composer, Machine Age, Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris
