CURRIER & IVES
Nathaniel CURRIER and James IVES created a collection of some 7000 lithographs and prints which reflected life in the fledgling America from 1840 onwards. The burning of the steamboat LEXINGTON was the 'spark' which ignited this amazing publishing house. Currier produced a hand colored lithograph within a few days of the event & was inundated with orders. From this small beginning, current events as they unfolded, were recorded in the unique style of Currier and Ives.
