This image resides in the collections of the Musee Carnavalet as well as the Musee d'Orsay. Amazing, vintage and well-known albumen photograph of a lion-faced door knocker at the Hotel President Denis in Paris by Eugene Atget.Atget (1857-1927) was an incredibly important
french photographer who produced an archive of close to 10,000 8x10
glass plate negative images of his city Paris. His documentation of
architecture, gardens, doorknobs, statues and people of Paris was done
as a basically unknown during his lifetime and he made his living by selling prints of his images to locals and to artists who used his
images as models for paintings and by architects for models. He printed
his own albumen prints from the large negatives he shot and gained the
attention of Berenice Abbot who purchased some of his photographs, then
later by Man Ray who published some of his images in a surrealist
magazine even using one for a cover. He gained a little attention
towards the end of his life but died in 1927- Berenice Abbot then
purchased the remains of his archive and negatives with Julian Levy and
put together the 1930 book PHOTOGRAPH DE PARIS- which became a very
important photography history book. His works then became widely
exhibited and in 1968 the collection was purchased by the Museum of
Modern Art. Atget's work is extremely historically important and his
prints are beautiful and collected by museums throughout the world.
