  • Disderi - Carte de Visite

    Disderi (°1819 -+1889)

    • Portrait of a lady (Comtesse Gaston de Buisseret ?)
    • An early example of carte de visite pictures.
    • The photo was simply glued on a cardboard paper the size of a normal "carte de visite", while the photographer put his name and address on the back.
    • Disderi is considered the first photographer who popularized this type of picture, but the name and description was published in the magazine "La Lumière" by La Gavinie as early as 1857
    • Date: c.1858 - 1880.
