(Wesleyan University Press) This collection of seven essays explores the work of the Kellogg brothers, who began producing lithographs in Hartford, Conn., by 1830. The essays focus on the artists and craftsmen behind the lithographs, the variety of subjects they depicted, and the uses and audiences they had in mind. The text is complemented by examples of the Kellogg brothers’ works, which document everything from quiet domestic scenes to the Great Chicago Fire and the Mexican War. Nancy Finlay is curator of graphic arts at the Connecticut Historical Society, which holds more than 1,000 examples of the Kellogg brothers’ works.
