Naturally Fond of Pictures: American Illustration of the 1840s and 1850s
by Karen Nipps, curator.
Organized by Karen Nipps, this colorful exhibition of books, periodicals, and ephemera documented the truth of cracker-barrel philosopher Frederick W. Sawyer's 1860 saying that man was a species naturally fond of pictures. The mid-19th century was an important era in American illustration that has frequently been overlooked by historians.
