05.10.2017 PWT 40-2017 TAPETUM LUCIDUM, LOOKING AT VALLOU’S PAPER NEGATIVES

Vallou de Villeneuve studied with Jean-François Millet, and started his career as a painter at the Paris Salon of 1814, exhibiting images depicting daily life, fashion, regional costumes and already nude studies… He published in the 1820s lithographs of Types des Femmes…


From 1842 de Villeneuve took up photography, not long after its invention, as an adjunct and aid to his graphic work, producing some daguerreotypes but predominantly softly toned salted paper prints from single-surface paper negatives that enabled the retouching he employed for artistic effect. Following the method of Humbert de Molard, he fixed his prints with ammonia which avoided the bleaching of highlights caused in salt prints by hypo, and thus incidentally ensured the archival permanence of his prints, which survive today.
