Daguerre's American Legacy: Photographic Portraits (1840-1900) from the Wm. B. Becker Collection
April 18, 2014 through January 4, 2015


Provocative, thoughtful and sometimes haunting, the portraits in this exhibition of 19th century Americans portray men, women and children during an era when new photographic technologies were just becoming accessible and popular.

Accompanied by a 327-page catalogue, this is the first stop in the United States for over 200 images made using a variety of techniques, from the collection of William B. Becker, a noted collector of early photography.
