Lot description
This surreal reflection is a good example of what some call "19th century modernism." The photographer is Saugrin, believed to be Louis Francois Saugrin, an important early French photographer who worked in daguerreotype, stereo views and other media. This photograph comes from an album of what may be Saugrin’s own home and estate. The album contains fine landscape images, probably made the 1850s or early 1860s. Most appear to be experiments in toning techniques, as often the same image is produced in vastly different tones ranging from deep purple to a yellowish cast. Large format prints by Saugrin are almost unknown.
