Béchard, Henri
Views of Egypt

Lot 4007

Views of Egypt: ruins, temples of Karnak, landscapes and portraits. Mid-1870s. 7 albumen prints. Circa 26,5 x 37,4 cm and 37,4 x 26,5 cm. Each with photographer's name in lower right corner, as well as numbered and titled in lower left in the negative, mounted to board, annotated in pencil below images on mount, 2 with collector's label on mount verso.

Béchard produced some of the most well-composed and endearing photographs of Egypt. They are not as common as photos by Sebah, Bonfils, Arnoux and Zangaki, as the studio only worked from the 1870s-1880s, whereas the other studios were still producing work throughout the 1890s. The prints offered here are signed by H.(enri) Béchard but prints signed by Émile Béchard, who might have been his brother or even the same person, also exist. – Some surface scuff marks, otherwise strong prints with a rich chocolate-brown tone and in very good condition.
