Painting Series: DAGUERREOTYPES
The Smithsonian American Art Museum has acquired a collection of objects related to early American photography from the collector Larry J. West. The West Collection includes 286 objects from the 1840s to about 1925 in three groupings: works by early African American daguerreotypists James P. Ball, Glenalvin Goodridge, and Augustus Washington; early photographs of diverse portrait subjects and objects related to abolitionists, the Underground Railroad, and the role of women entrepreneurs in it; and photographic jewelry that represents the bridge between miniature painting and early cased photography such as daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes.
We’re using images of daguerreotypes inspiration for our paintings.
