Overview

Impressionist to Modernist: Masterworks of Early Photography

Featuring an international group of artists, this exhibition captured, through more than 70 works, a pivotal time in the history of the development of the medium. Rare, hand-crafted-vintage prints made through a variety of processes illustrate some of the artistic choices open to the late-19th and  early-20th century photographer, and chart the shift to prominence of the classic black and white (gelatin silver) print, which came to dominate photography in the 20th century.
