Mounted Models

Scope and Contents

The glass flowers were photographed multiple times over many years. Different photographic proceses were used including black and white photographs, color photographs, cyanotypes, and slides. The photographs are arranged and were digitized by photographic process.

Within each photographic process, for example black and white photographs, each model is represented once in the finding aid. However, there may be multiple black and white images of a single model. All images are viewable by clicking the thumbnail in the finding aid leading to the Harvard Library viewer.
