"Antebellum Portraits by Mathew Brady"

Through June 3, 2018

Long before he rose to fame as a Civil War photographer, Mathew Brady ran a renowned portrait gallery in New York City, where he produced daguerreotypes for a wide range of individuals.

A pioneering figure in the medium of photography, Brady embraced the latest technological advances and incorporated the newest processes into his thriving portrait practice.

Highlights of the exhibition include an ambrotype of Western explorer and civil engineer Frederick West Lander and a salted paper print of presidential hopeful Abraham Lincoln.
