“Joseph Joachim,” 1868 by Julia Margaret Cameron

In Concert: Photography and the Violin

Upcoming Spring 2023

From the Collection of Evan Mirapaul

For nearly the entire history of the medium, violins have appeared in photographs in ways that signify talent, status, geography, and culture – and have often been presented as beautiful objects unto themselves. This exhibition, featuring 250 original photographs, spans a period of more than 175 years from the 1840s to today, and includes examples of nearly every photographic process.
