The Hand-drawn Negative: Clichés-verre by Corot, Daubigny, Delacroix, Millet and Rousseau (1854-1862)

The Hand-drawn Negative: Clichés-verre by Corot, Daubigny, Delacroix, Millet and Rousseau (1854-1862) at Peter Freeman. "...the most important and complete collection of clichés-verre in private hands. The cliché-verre, a relatively obscure and still largely-overlooked medium, was borne amidst the flurry of excitement and experimentation following the invention of photography in the early 19th century. Considered a hybrid of printmaking and photography yet made without camera, the cliché-verre was both a creative curiosity and an innovative and unique means to instantly produce differing versions of a single image."
