  • Le Petit Palais - Two portraits of the painter Bellanger painting in the open air - petitpalais.paris.fr
    open air Anonymous Gelatin silver prints on paper 11 2 cm x 8 5 cm and 10 7 cm x 8 4 cm Camille Félix Bellanger Paris 1853 Paris 1923 was a well known academic painter These two portraits of the artist at work depict him not as a bourgeois painter but as a modern artist the vogue for open air painting which became so popular in the late 19th century profoundly altered artistic practice Bellanger therefore appears very much as a painter of his times working on an outdoor subject without going so far as to paint it from life at least in this example There is a detail which draws the eye in one of the two photographs in the bottom left hand corner of his easel is what could be a working photograph on which the artist is basing his canvas We can therefore see the tricks of the trade at first hand since artists had been using photography from its beginnings both for documentary purposes as was apparent in the recent exhibition Delacroix and photography as well as for more structural ends This picture is particularly relevant to the photographic collection at the Petit Palais which

    In 1 click Students Researchers Disabled visitors Press Corporate Partners Newsletter The Grand Palais I Stéphane Couturier Paris 1957 Digitally printed using pigmented inks 74 cm x 58 cm Stéphane Couturier born in Paris in 1957 has been committed to documenting the anatomy of the city since the late 1980s In order to achieve this the photographer takes pictures of open sections during building works to capture changes in the urban landscape In his work indeterminacy underlies the gloss of the ordinary and documentary objectivity Although the subject is firmly rooted in reality it tends to merge with its representation The focus is not so much architecture or town planning as the process of perceiving works of art combined with an inquiry into the photographic medium itself Taken at a time of day when the light is as neutral as possible the photographs contained in the portfolio are extremely sharp and remarkably free of shadows Frontal views are de rigueur the structure of the image simultaneously draws the eye and disconcerts Here architecture is considered to be a living organism evolving with the sedimentary layers of history Onto the steel structure worn by the rigours of time is superimposed a second metallic structure a sort of prosthesis supporting a sick body Aside from the documentary element inherent in the work of Stéphane Couturier this collection also aims to make the Grand Palais a symbol of the stages of the architectural development of Paris a stimulus for thought at the interface of photography architecture and the plastic arts Inventory number PPPH00564 1 to 8 Inventory number PPPH00564 1 to 8 Acquisition details Purchase 2009 This work is not currently on display Roll your mouse over the exhibit to view detail Previous 3 6 Next A A A Back to the collection
