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-Eugene Haussmann built in their place for Emperor Napoleon III. This exhibition presents a selection of around one hundred of his photographs.
