About the Exhibit
The exhibition presents a rare collection of vintage engravings that vividly portray Yellowstone National Park through its first three decades (1871-1902). The theme of the exhibition illustrates the symbiotic development of painting and photography in the 19th century. William Henry Jackson and Thomas Moran were the first photographer and painter to capture Yellowstone’s remarkable geysers, hot springs, canyons, and waterfalls. The engraving process was utilized during this period to mass-produce images and publicize the natural wonders of the Park.
