Currier & Ives

Select an image on the right to view information and price.

Certainly the most famous American printmakers of the 19th century are Currier and Ives. Over a period of about 60 years, from the 1830s to the end of the century, Currier & Ives, who styled themselves as "printmakers to the people," produced more than 7,000 prints. In the process, they employed some of the best artists of the day. Today Currier & Ives prints are a prized, if somewhat idealized, vision of 19th century America. Tracing the growth of the country from an agricultural to an industrialized economy, and addressing almost all facets of life and society, Currier & Ives prints offer a pictorial record of the young nation that cannot be surpassed.
