Charles Marville’s portfolio has been quite busy recently. In addition to a show at the Howard Green recently previewed  by BWGallerist – an exhibition has been on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art since the end of January. 

Widely acknowledged as one of the most talented photographers of the nineteenth century, Charles Marville (French, 1813–1879) was commissioned by the city of Paris to document both the picturesque, medieval streets of old Paris and the broad boulevards and grand public structures that Baron Georges-Eugène Haussmann built in their place for Emperor Napoleon III. This exhibition presents a selection of around one hundred of his photographs.

The exhibition was organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Now through May 4, 2014
