Description
A pioneering female photographer, Sarah Angelina Acland (1849–1930) placed herself at the forefront of the medium with her far-ranging curiosity and impressive use of color. As shown in the more than 200 reproductions here, Acland could have made her name solely on the strength of her black and white photographs of English architecture and interiors, as well as her sensitive portraiture, ably capturing the essences of not only her family but also John Ruskin, Lord Kelvin, and William Gladstone. Making sophisticated use of a color process developed by the Lumière brothers, however, Acland came into her own with striking photos of landscapes and flowers, as well as spectacular images from her sojourns in Portugal and Gibraltar, all depicted here in vibrant color. In addition to providing biographical background on this gifted yet underappreciated British artist, Giles Hudson also explains how Acland made use of the rapid technological developments of photography's first half-century.
