Silhouettes: From Craft to Art

Until 30 September 2014

Silhouettes in Album
Two silhouettes on page in English album circa 1830

This exhibition explores the production of hand-cut and printed silhouettes in books and manuscript albums from the late 1700s to the present, both as craft and as art forms in Europe and the United States.

The 'craze' for silhouettes popularized this figurative genre among a wide audience at the end of the eighteenth-century. Amateurs and professionals alike made silhouettes for private use or widespread circulation. During the nineteenth century, the visual vocabulary of these figures expanded. While remaining a popular art, silhouette-making attracted the interest of artists. The exhibit includes well-known books about or including silhouettes such as those of Johann Caspar Lavater and Kara Walker, as well as lesser known items representative of the subject.
