Eadweard Muybridge and the Photographic Panorama of San Francisco, 1850-1880

Exhibition, Main galleries, 31 March 1993 to 25 July 1993

Centring on Eadweard Muybridge’s panoramas, this exhibition examines the representations of San Francisco from 1850 to 1880, a period of phenomenal growth and development for the city.

Contextualizing Muybridge’s work, the exhibition includes multi-panel daguerreotype panoramas, photographic panoramas (including sets of stereocards), photographic-view books and albums, lithographs, etchings, and steel engravings, along with a selection of pertinent maps and lithographic bird’s-eye views. The works are drawn from the CCA collection and from public and private collections in the United States.

Curated by David Harris, CCA.
