Gustave Le Gray, 1820-1884 by Sylvie Aubenas( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustave Le Gray's life, vividly reconstructed here by Sylvie Aubenas, reads like a romantic novel. As a young painter in Rome, he fell in love with and impetuously married a young and beautiful Italian woman by whom he had six children. He then returned to Paris to take up photography and received important commissions from Napoleon III. He also astonished viewers with his painterly landscapes and ravishing seascapes." "In an abrupt reversal of fortune, Le Gray's backers wearied of his financial irresponsibility, and he was forced to declare bankruptcy and give up his studio. He abandoned his wife and children and fled Paris on a voyage to the Mediterranean with Alexandre Dumas. After traveling on his own to Beirut and Baalbek, the photographer settled in Alexandria and then Cairo, where he became drawing master to the ruler's children. He occasionally made photographs until his death in poverty there in 1884, leaving behind some of the most dazzling photographic images of his era." "This catalogue, a complete retrospective of the work of nineteenth-century photographer Gustave Le Gray, is the result of years of combing public and private collections and archives in Europe and North America. It offers, as no previous publication has, both a narrative of the photographer's life and as assessment of Le Gray's unique and important place in the history of photography." "This volume is being published to accompany the exhibition Gustave Le Gray, Photographer, held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and was originally produced in French to accompany the exhibition of Le Gray's work organized by the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris."--Jacket
