CDR-1195: SR Set: Photography

Our collection of photographs is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bridgeman Art Library (which includes works from the prestigious Giraudon archive, founded in 1877). 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. Updated 9/2009. Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections. You do not need to order an entire set; you can also order individual images from each Set.
