Here at JG Autographs we have always celebrated the impact and influence of history on¬†contemporary art and culture. In fact, its one of the cornerstones our company is built on. So as you can imagine we were extremely pleased to discover award winning author Donna Tartt’s references to Civil War documentarian Mathew Brady’s infamous photographs of the casualties at Gettysburg and his 19th century New York studios; thumb to page 128 of this years “standout Dickensian” novel ‘The Goldfinch’ named for the 350-year-old portrait by Dutch painter and Rembrandt pupil Carel Fabritius. We salute you Ms. Tartt, for knowing and sharing our history.
