Brooklyn in the Early 1890s: Photographs by Daniel Berry Austin

Press Releases ?
  • December 11, 1941: Today the Brooklyn Museum opens the first exhibition of photographs from the Daniel Berry Austin Collection. This exhibition, entitled, “Brooklyn in the Early 1900’s”, is installed in the Entrance Gallery, first floor, and will remain on view through Sunday, January 4. Approximately 120 prints are shown, the majority being of old houses in Brooklyn, supplemented by landscapes, street scenes, interiors and portraits.

    These photographs are from the collection of late 19th and early 20th Century negatives, which was presented to the Museum last summer by Mr. Daniel Berry Austin, 870 Rugby Road, Brooklyn. With one or two exceptions, all the negatives in this large collection were taken by Mr. Austin.

    From time to time the Museum expects to hold additional exhibitions of prints from this collection.

    List of titles attached.

"Hi Aimee, I think you mean Oreet Ashery? More information can be found in her profile on the Feminist Art Base: http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/eascfa/feminist_art_base/gallery/oreet_ashery.php?i=266"

"Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

Prints, Drawings and Photographs

Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation. These objects are listed here for your reference and archival interest, but the list may be incomplete and does not contain objects owned by other institutions or lenders.
