Taking his camera where most of his artist friends carried their easels and paint boxes—through the streets of Barbizon and along the wooded paths of the Forest of Fontainebleau—Eugène Cuvelier brought the spirit of mid-nineteenth-century landscape painting to the still-young medium of photography. His carefully composed and richly printed photographs were admired by the pre-Impressionists, contributing to their vision while drawing inspiration from their paintings. The Metropolitan Museum of Art celebrates this cross-fertilization of photography and the other arts, giving overdue recognition to the creator of some of the most lyrical landscapes in early photography. This book of Cuvelier's work is part of The Springs of Achievement Series on the Art of Photography, exemplifying Springs Industries' commitment to honor creative expression and to bring to the public outstanding achievements in photographic art.
