About This Image

An interesting use of an out-of focus foreground object that gives this image an unusual feel and sense of modernism.

Inscription in the negative at upper left: "Em. Pec, Chartres 14 bis". See: Mondenard and Pagneux, Modernisme ou Modernite, Les Photographes du Cercle de Gustave Le Gray, 2012, p.125; La Photographie IV. Collection M.T. et A. Jammes, p.55; Hershkowitz. About Sixty French Calotypes, Cockhaise, reproduction pl. 26; Jammes and Janis, The Art of French Calotype, fig.119, p.230. There is also a variant in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, numbered just 14 with shadows enveloping the head of the left statue.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
