Interior with Portraits (1865) by Thomas Le Clear shows the tension between painting and photography, which was just invented. The two children here pose for the camera, surrounded by painted portraits of their older family members. The two children are actually siblings of the commissioner of this painting. They had passed away already, and the commissioner, Franklin Sidway, wanted a memory of them. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #Photography #Portrait #Portraits #Siblings #Tension #Technology #Camera #LeClear #ThomasLeClear #AmericanArt #Smithonian #HistoryofArt
