Humanity demands that no life should pass without some recognition, whether it is a marked grave, a painted posthumous portrait, or a postmortem photograph. Securing the Shadow: Posthumous Portraiture in America is the first museum exhibition dedicated to an examination of American self-taught portraiture of the 18th and 19th centuries through the lens of memory and loss.
