Speculating Daguerre: Art and Enterprise in the Work of  L. J. M. Daguerre.
DAGUERRE. Pinson, Stephen C.
Speculating Daguerre: Art and Enterprise in the Work of L. J. M. Daguerre.
In Speculating Daguerre, Stephen C. Pinson reinterprets the story of the man and his time, painting a vivid picture of Daguerre as an innovative artist and savvy impresario whose eventual fame as a photographer eclipsed everything that had come before. Drawing upon previously unpublished correspondence and unplumbed archival sources, Pinson mixes biography with an incisive study of Daguerre's wide-ranging involvement in visual culture. From his work as a commercial lithographer to his co-invention of the Paris Diorama -- a theater in the round in which Daguerre employed natural light and special effects to simulate time and movement in large-scale paintings -- here we are given access to Daguerre the artist, whose tireless experimentation, entrepreneurial spirit, and exceptional talent for popular spectacle helped to usher in a new visual age.
