Gustave Le Gray's photographs are dazzling with technical mastery, balance, finesse of detail and richness of colour.
This unprecedented and masterful reconstruction of his work, initiated by the French National Library, gives the measure of the enormous contribution of this artist to the history of photography and therefore to the history of art of the nineteenth century.
Le Gray was born in 1820 near Paris and trained there as a painter. Around 1847 he took up photography.
