Charles MARVILLE (1813-1879)
Charles Marville worked as a painter-engraver before becoming interested in photography. Over the course of his career, he reproduced works of art from the Louvre and created a photographic inventory of Parisian architecture, revealing the capital's metamorphosis generated by the large urban planning projects. His photographs were published by the printer and editor, Blanquart-Évrard.
In 2013, the year that marks the 200th anniversary of his birth, we invite you to rediscover his work through this selection.
Photographs by this artist can also be found on Arago, web portal of the French photography.
