The Artistic Mr. Wilson – Photographs from the McCann Collection

“The Artistic Mr. Wilson” exhibition is in our main-floor reading room during the summer of 2017. It opened on June 20 when curator Edward McCann gave a talk for our Lunchtime Series, and continues until August 31.

George Washington Wilson was a pioneering photographer in Scotland, who famously photographed Queen Victoria and is also remembered for his innovations in landscape photography. The exhibition includes important Wilsonian photographs from Edward McCann’s personal collection as well as historic apparatus.
