Another of those early photographs is Francis Frith’s “The Second Pyramid from the Southeast.” It affords one of several chimings with the nearly three dozen pictures in “Artist’s Choice: Photographs from the Judy Glickman Lauder Collection.” The show runs in Portland through May 29The chiming is with Richard Misrach’s “Road Blockade and Pyramid,” taken 130 years after Frith.
There’s also Wagstaff’s Bill Brandt nude and Lauder’s Brandt of a maid serving tea.
No less important, Wagstaff did more perhaps than any other individual to demonstrate the acceptance of photography as a fine art.
By the time he was done, he had accumulated no fewer than 26,754 photographic items. The uncategorizability of the collection reflected that of photography itself.
Wagstaff’s holdings ranged in date from the 1830s to the 1970s, taking in everything from classic art photographs to images used as medical illustrations, the work of photographers famous and photographers anonymous.
In his final years, he obsessively collected American silverware.
There’s an example in “The Thrill of the Chase,” an 1870s ice bucket with polar bear handles.
