Additional Details

From A Private Collector, 1970s; to the Louis K. Meisel Gallery, New York, New York.

In the 1852 edition of his treatise, Le Gray wrote: 'It is my deepest wish that photography, instead of falling within the domain of industry, of commerce, will be included among the arts. That is its sole, true place, and it is in that direction that I shall always endeavor to guide it. It is up to the men devoted to its advancement to set this idea firmly in their minds.'
