Likeness and Landscape: Thomas M. Easterly and the Art of the Daguerreotype
by Dolores A. Kilgo
Publisher's Description
This monograph on the twenty-seven year career of Thomas M. Easterly, who has been described as "Daguerre's most dedicated follower," establishes him as a new master in the ranks of nineteenth-century photography. Going beyond the traditional Daguerrean portrait, Easterly's subjects included landscapes and views of St. Louis, New York State, and New England, and a series of Native American portraits which constitute the earliest dated photographic record of Plains tribespeople. An essential addition to the libraries of scholars, collectors, and students of the history of photography.
