Close Looking: Daguerreotypes of the Philippines, from Faith and Fortune

Join us to see the ways art reveals and shapes the world in which we live. Close looking is an online monthly series that invites people to spend time with artworks from the AGO Collection - observing their details, discussing its creation, its history and the artist’s intention through multiple senses and perspectives. 

Join AGO Conservator of Photographs Katharine Whitman and Adam Harris Levine, assistant curator, European Art and Dr. Noemí Espinosa Fernandez, assistant curator of the Hispanic Society Museum and Library, as they discuss daguerreotypes from the Philippines and specifically, Plazuela de San Gabriel, Manila, Philippines, a daguerreotype attributed to Jules Alphonse Eugene Itier (1802 -1877) that is currently on view as part of Faith and Fortune: Art Across the Global Spanish Empire, courtesy the Hispanic Society Museum & Library. This discussion focuses on the daguerreotype process and its creation in the Philippines in the early 1840s, right after their introduction in France in 1839, and the conservation concerns behind displaying this artwork.
