Niagara Falls Lithographs
In 1850, Susan and Austin Dickinson began courting. They announced their engagement in 1853 and were married on July 1, 1856 at her aunt’s home in Geneva, New York. The couple took their honeymoon at the popular tourist destination of Niagara Falls, bringing back these two framed color lithographs by prolific French artist Isidore Laurent Deroy as souvenirs.
This purchase can be seen as marking the beginning of The Evergreens art collection, which helped turn it into a highly fashionable home.
