CAMERON, JULIA MARGARET Ianthe Mrs Duckworth SAVE Albumen print, 1867 13.75x10.5 inches Inscribed JMC and Registered from Life

Julia Margaret Cameron at The Metropolitan

One of the greatest portraitists in the history of photography, Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) blended an unorthodox technique, a deeply spiritual sensibility, and a Pre- Raphaelite-inflected aesthetic to create a gallery of vivid portraits and a mirror of the Victorian soul. This will be the first New York City museum exhibition devoted to Cameron's work in nearly a generation, and the first ever at the Met. The showing of thirty-five works is drawn entirely from the Metropolitan's rich collection, including major works from the Rubel Collection acquired in 1997 and the Gilman Collection acquired in 2005.
