  • BIOGRAPHY :: The Civil War is credited with what has been called 'The Birth Of Photojournalism'. And in 2013 New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art presented an immense exhibition titled 'Photography And The American Civil War'. The man unanimously known as the photographer of his time and the master of crafting the photographic documentation of this war was Matthew Brady. Matthew Brady (c. 1822/1824 – January 15, 1896) was born in Warren County, New York, near Lake George, and moved to New York about 1839.

    1839 is the same year Frenchman Louis Daguerre unveiled his invention of photography—captured on a silver plate known as a daguerreotype. Brady learned the process from inventor & painter Samuel Morse. Morse developed the concept of a single-wire telegraph and subsequently secured a patent for what became the Morse code that he developed as well. Even prior to the war, Brady set himself apart from the dozens of other New York daguerreotype photographers, winning the top prize for a daguerreotype in the American Institute’s annual fair. Yet the daguerreotype gave way to the glass plate negative process in the 1850s and Brady led it's mass marketing as a skilled self-promoter. Brady's galleries produced and sold Civil War photos by the thousands. Brady himself however had poor eyesight and although he is credited as photographer in all his works-it was most often his assistants that actually prepared and executed the volume of photographs in the field. Of his assistant photographers, which included James Gibson and Timothy O’Sullivan, the most talented was Alexander Gardner (featured equally in this auction-[see his bio in other Lot's in this sale]).

    Brady’s exhibit at his New York gallery, “The Dead of Antietam,” drew large crowds, and he strategically arranged portrait photographs of key individuals, including his famous 1865 photographs of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond just days after his surrender. In 1875, he gained some relief from his chronic money troubles when the U.S. government bought the Civil War negatives and prints still in his possession for $25,000.. which still equated to a great loss due to Brady's personal investment of $100,000.00 into his wartime project. Now in his 70s, Brady’s health began to decline after a street car accident in Washington and suffered a broken ankle. Depressed by his financial situation and loss of eyesight, and devastated by the death of his wife in 1887, he died penniless in the charity ward of Presbyterian Hospital in New York City on January 15, 1896, from complications following the accident. He is buried in Congressional Cemetery in Washington. *(Brady's photograph can be viewed in the image list for Lot# 1; but is not included as part of any bid or purchase).
