  • ARTIST: William Brown

  • PUBLISHER: Published by G. A. Baker & Co., New York.

  • MEDIUM: Duotone photogravure,

    DATE: 1845 (1931).

  • EDITION SIZE: Average paper size 16 5/8 x 12 1/4" (42.3 x 31.2 cm).

  • DESCRIPTION: This photogravure is based on a lithographed silhouette from Brown's "Portrait Gallery of Distinguished American Citizens." Described as "one of the outstanding American silhouettists" in "America on Stone," Brown wandered the country executing full-length silhouette portraits of major public figures. He placed each into a landscape or interior background related to the individual. Most of the original 1845 edition, which were lithographs, was destroyed by fire, so they are quite scarce.


  • CONDITION: Good condition.
