Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Featuring thirty-eight of the most inventive photographers in the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection, this richly illustrated publication marks twenty years of collecting photographs at the Museum. From Hippolyte Bayard's first forays into the new medium to Gustave Le Gray's arresting seascapes to Edward Weston's carefully composed nudes to Diane Arbus's portraits, the 114 photographs presented here demonstrate the influence of the art over 125 years from 1842 to 1967. This valuable survey not only brings together works by the best-known photographers of this time period but also contributes to the history of the medium by introducing several noteworthy nineteenth-century practitioners who have received very little attention to date.
