Platinum and Photogravure

17 Aug 2007 - 12 Nov 2007

To demonstrate that photography was a medium capable of expressing mood and emotion equal to painting or traditional printmaking, photographers turned to the use of platinum and photogravure among other new processes. This installation of some 30 portraits, landscapes, and views of architecture dating from the latter part of the 19th century and the early 20th century highlight some of the most exquisite prints in the collection.
