Cover of this selection

from the Tex

In 1860, Adrien Tournachon, who had made a specialty since 1855 of photographing competition animals, produced an album entitled Race Chevaline. Competition of 1860. These two plates with neat legends are extracted from it. Beyond the documentary value of these works, the artist takes care of the play of light, the pose of the animal and the breeder.

Adrien Alban Tournachon (French, 1825 - 1903)
