“Images of Jesus: Victorian Artists, Printers & Publishers

Various times, ongoing through August 31, 2014. (see calendar)

Bill Lattin with Images of JesusArt exhibit represents various 19th century printing techniques and a variety of themes, some allegorical and devotional, and others illustrate narratives quoting scripture. The antique prints from the United States and Europe range in age from the 1860s to around 1905. These devotional prints were mass-produced for the home using a number of processes including engraving, chromo printing, and lithography, with some printed on metal, and some with hand coloring and decoration. The prints all appear in their original frames.

The exhibit was curated by Orleans County historian C. W. “Bill” Lattin, and draws on his collection of over a thousand Victorian devotional art objects and is intended to compliment the Albion Stained Glass Window Tour led by Bill Lattin, and sponsored by the Albion Merchants Association.
