Portrait of Charles Garnier

Adam-Salomon, Antoine Samuel


Galerie Contemporaine



Mounted Woodburytype. Photograph: 23.7x19.2 cm (9¼x7½"); sheet: 34.4x24.7 cm (13½x9¾"). Matted. From Galerie Contemporaine Littéraire, Artistique Vol. 4.

The Galerie Contemporaine, a French publication, appeared weekly from 1876 to 1884, under the imprint of Ludovic Basket, in Paris. Each issue comprised a biographical essay and accompanying portrait, reproduced in Woodburytype and printed by Goupil (and for the final volume, a successor firm). The cover price was relatively high — 1 franc 25 centimes — reflecting the high quality of the publication’s print, paper, and photographs. Jean-Louis Charles Garnier (1825-98) was a French architect, perhaps best known as the architect of the Palais Garnier and the Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
