19th C. Architectural Views

Share:

The exhibition titled Permanence and Change: Architectural Views presents primarily 19th century architectural views beginning in 1842 by William Henry Fox Talbot, Henri Le Secq, Gustave Le Gray, Félix Teynard, and Auguste Salzmann among others.

Félix Teynard (1817-1892) completed an extensive photographic survey of Egypt during the course of a voyage along the Nile in 1851-52. Auguste Salzmann (1824-1872), a landscape painter in a family of painters, was lured into photography perhaps as a result of his first trip to the Holy Land in 1850. In 1854, Salzmann won a commission from the Ministry of Public Instruction to photograph monuments left by crusading knights. A surgeon by training and an amateur photographer by avocation, Dr. Thomas Keith (1827-1895) made several studies of Greyfriars Churchyard in Edinburgh. Louis-Antoine Froissart (1815-1860) was the official photographer for the city of Lyon, photographing scenes and events of municipal interest. He documented also the Lyon Flood in May 1856. Louis-Emile Durandelle (1839-1917) is best known for his group of photographs of the construction of the Paris Opéra and its sculptural ornaments and decorations.
