Humanity demands that no life should pass without some recognition, whether it is a marked grave, a painted posthumous portrait, or a postmortem photograph. This is the catalog for the homonymous exhibition: Securing the Shadow: Posthumous Portraiture in America, the first major museum exhibition dedicated to an examination of American self-taught portraiture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the lens of memory and loss. Features a foreword by Anne-Imelda Radice, Executive Director of the American Folk Art Museum, and two curatorial essays by Stacy C. Hollander, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs, Chief Curator, and Director of Exhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum; and Gary Laderman, Goodrich C. White Professor of Religion at Emory University. New York: American Folk Art Museum, 2016. Softcover with full flaps; one foldout page. 238 pages, 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.
