Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name, the book, Forgotten Marriage: The Painted Tintype & the Decorative Frame, 1860-1910: A Lost Chapter in American Portraiture, included a foreward by Gerard C. Wertkin, director of the Museum of American Folk Art in New York. The latter half of the book is a catalog to the exhibition; the first half is a thorough survey of the American portrait tradition, folk art and photography, the tintype, hand- colored photography, copy prints and enlargements, and the decorative frame. It documents the spread and democratization of painted portraits, and is the first book solely devoted to it to subject. Also included in the book is information on collecting, preserving, and evaluating photographic frames and a frame identification guide. A meticulously prepared volume--infused with Dr. Burns' love of the subject.
