New Canaan Historical Society Antique Silhouette Exhibit

01/09/2017 to 02/03/2017

13 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan, CT Phone: 203-966-1776.

An antique silhouette exhibit featuring silhouettes from the 1700s and 1800s has recently opened in the Townhouse at The New Canaan Historical Society and continues through February 3rd. The silhouette is a profile cut from white or black paper. In the 18th century, it was a simple alternative for people who could not afford other forms of portraiture. Silhouettes were named after Etienne de Silhouette, a French government official who in 1759 imposed such harsh economic demands that his name became synonymous with anything done very cheaply. The quick outlines, created at virtually no cost, come to be known as portraits a la Silhouette. The New Canaan Historical Society is open Tuesday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. -- 4:30 p.m., and Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
