Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre 
Monument to Daguerre, Washington 
Black and white image 
Archives of Modern Conflict OR National Gallery of Canada 
In 1890 the Professional Photographers of America donated this monument to Daguerre, by the American sculptor Jonathan Scott Hartley, to the American people. The bronze figure was cast by the Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company of New York. Placed in the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum Building (now known as the Arts and Industries Building) to celebrate the first half-century of photography, it remained indoors till it was moved in 1897.
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
