During the nineteenth century, French artists such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796–1875), Jean-François Millet (1814–1875), and Charles-François Daubigny (1817–1878) captured the spirit of the French countryside in their graphic work.
Many experimented with the new technique of cliché-verre (glass negative) to do so, thus combining elements of printmaking and photography. In 1921, the Parisian art dealer and publisher Maurice Le Garrec put together in a publication forty-one of these innovative prints by leading practitioners.
This exhibition displays the complete set of these lush, expressive images of nineteenth-century France.
Whether you go or not, the set of glass-negative prints displayed in this exhibition are presented in Le Cliche-Verre: Corot, Delacroix, Millet, Rousseau, Daubigny (French and English Edition),
