"Turning Away: A Glimpse into Moments of Defiance and Disconnection" In the midst of history's tapestry, a signed carte-de-visite captures Abraham Lincoln's weary countenance in 1864. His gaze turned away, perhaps burdened by the weight of a nation at war. The vignette framed with a gold-ruled border serves as a reminder of his leadership during tumultuous times. Fast forward to 1920, where an odalisque painted in oil on canvas beckons our attention. Her seductive allure is juxtaposed with her subtle act of turning away, leaving us to ponder the secrets she holds within her enigmatic gaze. A study of a male nude catches our eye next; he sits gracefully but turns away to the right. The watercolors on paper capture vulnerability and introspection, inviting us to question what thoughts lie hidden behind that turn. The gelatin silver print from 1930 portrays a reclining nude figure with hands gently placed behind their head. As they turn away from our view, we are left wondering about their inner world and the stories untold within this intimate moment frozen in time. An intricately hand-colored lithograph from 1865 showcases a ruffed grouse amidst nature's splendor. Yet even this majestic bird seems to be turning away ever so slightly - evoking curiosity about its motivations or desires beyond what meets the eye. William Pitt stands tall in three-quarter length portrait wearing dark attire that exudes power and authority. However, his slight turn hints at an underlying complexity or contemplation concealed beneath his confident facade. Amidst trees shrouded in mystery lies an albumen print capturing a semi-nude woman from the mid-19th century. As she turns slightly away from our gaze, we are invited to imagine her story unfolding amidst nature's embrace. Mileva Maric graces us with her presence through a carte-de-visite portrait from Zurich in the late 1800s.
