About the Tour

Tour our new exhibition, From Today, Painting Is Dead: Early Photography in Britain and France (February 24 – May 12), with a specially trained docent. Learn about the innovative processes being developed in the mid-19th century and the creative artists making their mark with the new medium, including William Henry Fox Talbot, credited with developing the first photographic prints on paper; Nadar, the great portraitist of Paris high society; and Gustave Le Gray, the leader of 1850s French art photography.
