The Golden Age of British Photography, 1839-1900
October 27, 1984 - January 6, 1985
The Golden Age of British Photography, 1839-1900 features 240 extraordinary 19th-century photographs, many of them newly discovered and previously unexhibited, by such photographers as William Henry Fox Talbot, Roger Fenton, John Murray, Oscar G. Rejlander, and Julia Margaret Cameron. One of the most significant historic exhibitions since the Museum's 1969 French Primitive Photography, it evoked the aspirations of the Victorian period, with its trust in technology and invention epitomized by the new photographic processes.
