Dickinson Brothers (active 1852-1908)

Artist associated with 27 portraits
Dickinson Brothers, a partnership of the brothers Lowes and Gilbert Dickinson, was a leading firm of printers and publishers. The company achieved national recognition for a set of fifty-five large, coloured lithographs, entitled Comprehensive Pictures of the Great Exhibition of 1851, which illustrated the various display areas at the Crystal Palace. By 1855, they had become interested in photography and had established two photographic portrait studios in London, one at their premises on New Bond Street and the other on Regent Street. Dickinson Brothers established a branch studio at a prime site on Kings Road, Brighton, in around 1862.
