"Sublime and Beautiful Mountain Scenery":
Western Images of A.E. Mathews
A.E. (Alfred Edward) Mathews(1831-1874) was an English immigrant whose early career was that of a traveling bookseller and artist. During his service in the Civil War he drew scenes of the conflict which were published as lithographs. In 1865, Mathews moved west and began producing the lithographs for which he is best known: images of Colorado, Montana and Rocky Mountain scenery. These views are among the earliest and rarest for the Rocky Mountain West and their detail provides important historical documentation.
This exhibit presents a selection of fifteen images from three of Mathews Western works:
Each image is accompanied by a brief description. The images have been selected from copies in the St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri - St. Louis and the Archives & Rare Books Department, University Libraries, University of Cincinnati.
The images also appear in: A.E. Mathews: The Western Works. Cincinnati, Ohio: University of Cincinnati Digital Press, 2004.
