Mathew Brady and the Image of History.
Photographs by Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and Timothy O'Sullivan. Text by Mary Panzer and Jeana K. Foley.
Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington D.C., 1997. 256 pp., 79 duotone and 71 black-and-white illustrations, 9x11".
In this fine National Portrait Gallery retrospective, Mary Panzer convincingly portrays Brady and his studio as a patriotic nation building venture aimed at creating the illusion of a coherent republic during the most fragmented period in U.S. history. A particularly well produced collection, Image is also a first class history and a beautiful monograph.
