Art & Art History
Catalog of an exhibition held at the Trout Gallery, created by Dickinson College senior art historical methods students under the supervision of Sharon Hirsh, professor of art and art history at the College.
Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Professor Sharon Hirsh, Dickinson College.
The works displayed here are individual ''windows" into the lives of the everyday people of the nineteenth century. With their print, drawing, or photographic techniques, they afford, furthermore, a level of detail requiring not only the skill of the artist then, but also the attention of us now.
