Mathew Brady may be best known today for his Civil War–era photographs, but he established his reputation as an acclaimed portrait photographer more than a decade before the war. This Daguerreian Gallery exhibition will trace the trajectory of Brady’s early career through portrait daguerreotypes, ambrotypes and salted-paper prints. Contemporary engravings, as well as several advertising broadsides Brady used to market his portrait enterprise, will also be included.
