Bisson Frères
Architectural Images, Palace with clock tower, Europe, 1860s

1860s

About

Pioneers of French photography, the Bisson brothers (Louis-Auguste Bisson and Auguste-Rosalie Bisson) photographed a series of architectural images in Europe in the early 1860s. This warm-hued albumen print is one such example from the series and documents a palace and its grand clock tower extending the eye across the composition. A later work in the oeuvre of photographs produced by the Bisson Freres studio, 'Palace with clock tower' exemplifies the Bisson Freres snapshot style of photography, which defied the posed photographic techniques that were made popular at the time by the daguerreotype. Printed on semi-gloss paper and mounted on original paper, the print features a blindstamp photographers' monogram in red, and a stamped photographers’ credit on the mount. This print was previously in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Albumen print mounted on paper Blindstamped with the photographers' monogram on the front; also stamped with the photographers' credit in blue on the back of the mount Image is approximately 14 x 18 in. (35.5 x 45.7 x cm.); Mount is approximately 18 x 22 in. (45.7 x 55.8 cm.)
