Beautiful silver photography of laure albin guillot. Size of the photograph 29 x 16 cm. Total size 29 x 20 cm. In the French art scene from the 1920s to the 1940s, where modernity and avant-garde production were favored by our contemporary eyes and tastes, the artist's photography might seem to be a counter-current tradition.
Yet this photograph, embodying classicism and a certain French style, was widely celebrated at the time. If Laure albin guillot photography is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable in the interwar period, his personality remains today an enigma.For, paradoxically, few studies have been devoted to the work and career of this artist. Her first works appeared in salons and publications in the early 1920s, but it was mainly during the 1930s and 1940s that laure albin guillot, artist, professional and institutional figure, occupied and dominated the photographic scene. An independent photographer, she devotes herself to various genres such as portraits, nudes, landscapes, still life and, to a lesser extent, storytelling. An outstanding technician, she raises the practice to a certain elitism. A photographer of her time, she uses the new modes of image diffusion and provides the press and publishing illustrations and advertising creations. She is one of the first in France to consider the decorative application of photography by her formal research with infinitely small. With the photomicrograph, which renamed micrograph, laure albin guillot thus offers new creative perspectives combining science and plastic arts.
Finally, at the same time a member of the society of the decorating artists, of the French society of photography, director of the photographic archives of the general direction of the fine arts (ancestor of the ministry of the culture) and first curator of the national film library, president of a feminine union of liberal careers, she appears as one of the most active personalities and the most aware of the photographic and cultural issues of her time.
