Blanton Museum of Art presents "Framing Eugène Atget: Photography and Print Culture in Nineteenth-Century Paris" closing day

Eugène Atget trained his lens on the city and the people of Paris for nearly four decades. The resulting photographic archive presents an enigmatic portrait of an evolving metropolis at the dawn of the twentieth century. This exhibition pairs over thirty photographs, printed from Atget's glass plate negatives, with etchings, engravings, and lithographs by other artists to highlight photography’s role as a new medium of illustration in popular print media, architectural documentation, and the reproduction of artworks.
