Currier & Ives

November 1, 1998 - January 3, 1999

Discover what American society was like during the 19th-century through this exhibition of approximately 50 delightful Currier & Ives lithographs.

Borrowed from a local collection, these prints are notable for their high quality and outstanding state of preservation. Images include picturesque landscapes, dramatic seascapes, and political satires. Several sporting prints are also included, as well as portraits of celebrities such as Horace Greeley, Queen Victoria, and Zachary Taylor, and prints of imaginary beauties for those with more romantic tastes. Meant to hang on the wall, these prints once provided the focal point for millions of parlors across America.
