Securing the Shadow: Posthumous Portraiture in America

Securing the Shadow: Posthumous Portraiture in America is the first museum exhibition dedicated to an examination of American self-taught portraiture of the 18th and 19th centuries through the lens of memory and loss.

Each is a whisper through the years to “remember me” because, as photographer Mathew Brady declared in 1856, “you cannot tell how soon it may be too late.” The American Folk Art Museum is dedicated to bringing a rich understanding and appreciation of self-taught art, in all its expressions, as a vital part of American art history and visual culture.
