About This Image

This image by Felix Nadar is printed from the original glass negative plate by Paul Nadar, his son. It is signed, stamped and captioned on the verso. An important piece of documentation of an important image by one of the masters of early photography. Louis Veuillot (October 11, 1813 - March 7, 1883) was a French journalist and man of letters. In 1843 he joined the staff of the Univers religieux. His methods of journalism had already provoked more than one duel, and for his polemics against the University of Paris in the L'Univers he was imprisoned for a short time. In 1848 he became editor of the paper, which was suppressed in 1860, but revived in 1867, when Veuillot continued his ultramontane propaganda, bringing about a second suppression of his journal in 1874. Veuillot then occupied himself in writing violent pamphlets against the moderate Catholics, the Second French Empire and the Italian government. His services to the papal see were fully recognized by Pope Pius IX, on whom he wrote (1878) a monograph.
