Event Description

This exhibition will feature approximately eighty works from 1840 to 1900 by some of the major practitioners of photography in France during that time—Édouard Baldus, Maxime du Camp, J. B. Greene, Gustave Le Gray and Nadar—and several examples of Eugène Atget’s work from the early twentieth-century. The exhibition will highlight the variety of techniques that were explored: daguerreotypes, salted paper prints, albumen silver prints and photogravures. All works are drawn from the National Gallery of Canada’s extensive collection of nineteenth-century French photography. Admission to the exhibition is free at all times.

An exhibition organized and circulated by the National Gallery of Canada.
