'Poor Man’s Picture Gallery': Art and Stereoscopic Photography – Research seminar Tate Research Centre: Victorian and Edwardian Art

Join us for our Victorian and Edwardian Art Research Centre’s seminar on the upcoming BP Spotlight Display 'Poor Man’s Picture Gallery': Art and Stereoscopic Photography

Exploring how the reproduction of fine art imagery through the intimate hand-held form of stereoscopy has affected our understanding of both forms of art, the display raises questions about realism central to the nineteenth-century arts. This seminar will provide an opportunity to share research on the works in the display, and to consider the relationship between stereoscopes and fine art.
