In The Works
As part of the ongoing intiatives to help fullfill the mission of the National Portrait Gallery and The Lemelson Center this interactive Web site exlpores the painting, Men of Progress, by Christian Schussele in 1862. The painting is a group portrait of American scientists and inventors whose inventions altered the course of American History.
We are currently finalizing a functional working proof-of-concept. The overarching design goal was evoke the sensibility of the era in which the painting was completed while allowing for a rich-media experience.
