A marvel of modern technology and leader in iron and steel making, coke production, and glass manufacturing, nineteenth-century Pittsburgh acquired a near-mythical status. The city became a symbol of American industrial might and was depicted in everything from fine art to advertising materials.""A Panorama of Pittsburgh"" is a testament to the extensive visual representation of Pittsburgh in books, magazines, illustrated newspapers, frameable views, maps, corporate identity, lithographs, and other types of materials during this period. Produced to accompany an exhibition hosted by the Frick Art & Historical Center as part of Pittsburgh 250, a regional celebration of the founding of Pittsburgh in 1758, the book features works selected from private, public, corporate, and club collections in Pittsburgh, as well as other institutions around the country. Guest curator Christopher W. Lane enlightens readers on the printmaking industry in the city and provides the most comprehensive list of prints of nineteenth-century Pittsburgh ever assembled.
