Photographs depicting Roman, Greek, Assyrian, and Egyptian sculpture in European museums. Most of the images were made in the British Museum, but others were made at the Vatican, the Louvre, and in Florence.
Adolphe Braun (1811-1877) was a French photographer and pioneer of photographic reproduction techniques at his studios in Paris and Dornach. Mostly created after 1866, his photographs of famous works of art helped advance the field of art history; this was his most successful photographic project.
