Description
GABRIEL HARRISON BY ALVA PEARSALL. 5 5/8 x 4- inch albumen print tipped onto a page from a publication.An informative article about Harrison, "The Poetic Daguerrean," by Grant Romer, can be found here: http://www.be-hold.com/uploads/Harrison.pdf

The flamboyant and energetic Harrison had a career in the theater and was active in politics, though he is best known for his daguerreotypes. He is credited with important daguerreotypes of Poe and Whitman (it has been questioned whether he was the artist.) His other daguerreotypes include the famous "Infant Savior" in which his son is posed as Jesus carrying the cross. He worked in the Plumbe studio, and opened his own gallery in Brooklyn.

Pearson had served as an operator in Brady's Gallery, and opened his own studio in Brooklyn in 1877. Thus we have here two of the great daguerreotypists from Brooklyn, to be placed alongside the great Charles Williamson.
