Fanny Palmer
The Life and Works of a Currier & Ives Artist

Charlotte Streifer Rubinstein

Edited by Diann Benti

Cloth $60.00    |    978-0-8156-1095-3    |    2018

A captivating biography of one of the nineteenth century’s pioneering printmakers.

"Rubinstein’s work richly documents the life and work of an artist of significance in the history of American graphic arts. That significance is two-fold. First, Palmer was for many years a leading artist—arguably the leading artist—among the several who worked for the firm of Currier & Ives. . . . Second, Palmer was a great rarity in nineteenth–century America: a successful and prolific woman artist."—David Tatham, author of Winslow Homer in the Adirondacks

"The author set out to place Palmer’s work in its historical and art historical contexts and has accomplished her aim."—Georgia Barnhill, curator emerita, American Antiquarian Society
