Event description: This exhibition presents a small selection of 19th-Century British and American silhouettes from Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum and four private collections. Before photography became widely available, silhouette portraits were quick, easy, and affordable. Elegant ladies, family scenes, charming children, and more, reveal a compelling slice of life from the golden age of this art form. Through November 18.
