Details

Views of Egypt, Thèbes. Mid-1870s. 25 large-format albumen prints. 27 x 38 cm. Photographer's name in lower right corner, numbered and titled in lower left in the negative, mounted to board (time-stained in edges).
Ken Jacobson. Odalisques and Arabesques: Orientalist Photography 1839-1925. London 2007, see pp. 210-212. – Béchard produced some of the most well-composed and endearing photographs of Egypt. They are rarer than 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. – A few surface scuff marks, otherwise with strong tones and in very good condition.
