Brady, Mathew. Battery No. 4 Yorktown Modern Albumen Photograph
Loading 13-inch Seacoast Mortars
Mathew Brady Battery No. 4 Yorktown, modern albumen print.
Produced by the Mathew Brady Society, using original Brady collodion wet-plate negatives, this is a modern albumen photograph, created using the early photographic techniques used by Brady in the 1860s.
However, some improvements have taken place: a double-coating of the paper produces dense and vivid images; a high intensity mercury halide light guarantees perfect exposure for each print; and a special final wash produces authentic prints that are exceptionally durable as well as beautiful.
Each is reproduced on gold-toned, hand coated, acid-free, pure cotton albumen paper–and each is a work of art.
Battery No. 4, Yorktown, VA in May, 1862. 11 1/2 x 9 (sight), matted size, 18″ x 14″.
