Abstract:

Fifteen daguerreotypes attributed to photographer Mathew Brady that depict individual seated portraits of prominent men in the United States consisting of Presidents, senators and representatives of the United States Congress, justices of the United States Supreme Court, and governors of states and territories, ca. 1848-1850.

Ten portraits were created in the United States Capitol, March 1849. These portraits depict David Rice Atchison, Neill Smith Brown, Andrew Pickens Butler, John Caldwell Calhoun, John Davis, Millard Fillmore, Henry S. Foote, and Nathaniel Pritchard Tallmadge, and also include two justices of the United Supreme Court, Associate Justice John McLean and Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney, who are both pictured wearing their judicial robes.

Two portraits depict Zachary Taylor. The portrait of Taylor dressed in a military uniform is a copy photograph of an image originally created during or immediately after the Mexican War, ca. 1848. The portrait of Taylor dressed in a civilian suit was created at the White House, March 1849.

Three portraits were created in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and consist of a portrait of Henry Clay taken in November 1849, and portraits of James Duane Doty and Martin Van Buren, ca. 1849-1850.
