CDR-1195: SR Set: Photography

Our selection of photographs emphasizes the rich collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These photographs range from early experimental "photogenic drawings" of the 1830s, daguerreotypes, and tintypes, to gelatin silver prints of the twentieth century. Early photographers represented include Nadar, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Julia Margaret Cameron. The collection includes landscapes, portraits, architecture, nudes, and even documentation of scientific experiments. Especially noteworthy are portraits of contemporary French artists taken ca. 1850 including Manet, Monet, Morisot, Degas, Gauguin, and Renoir. Documentation of diverse sites range from Roman monuments in rural France to the spiritual center of exotic Jerusalem in the Middle East.
