Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Paper negative, 10-1/2 x 13-5/8 in. (267 x 346 mm), 1850c/1850c, unmounted. #7045. A wonderful waxed paper negative. This image is likely to be by Regnault, who is known to have done a number of similar studies of the entrance to Sevres, although it came from Robert's descendants. Provenance: Louis Robert; descendants; Christie's London. See: Jammes and Janis, The Art of French Calotype, pl.XXXV for a nearly identical image taken from the same vantage point and attributed by Jammes to Regnault.
