Southcotts, K.& J.Jacobson
This catalogue studies the relationship between 19th century photography and the art world. It is the first work to look in depth at the group of photographers who specialised in artists' studies in the 19th century. These photogrpahers worked during the same period in which Impressionism flourished. Their studies may not have embodied an intentional modernism, yet these documents represent some of the first steps in that direction.
Approximately 300 illustrations, most in duotone or color. More than 100 short biographies of photographers including Baldus, Fenton, LeGray, Aubry, Braun, Cuvelier, William Henry Jackson, and Disderi. Sections on Works of Art, Artists' Studies, Portraits of Artists and Their Circles, and Mixed Media (cliche-verre, hand colored photography, composite photography and photomontage). All works are for sale, including museum study collections. A valuable reference.
