Photographing the sublime. The Marinas by Gustave Le Gray

Exhibition - Photography
Madrid

Fifteen photographs from this famous series by photographer Gustave Le Gray, one of the great pioneers of photography as art, are on display at the Royal Palace of Madrid.

Gustave Le Gray was a central figure in European photography, and his works are striking not only as great aesthetic and commercial achievements, but also because of the technical research underpinning them. These photographs were taken near the French coast, on the Atlantic coast of Haute-Normandie and on the Mediterranean coast near the port of Sète. The collection was acquired by the Royal Palace during the reign of Isabel II in 1859, and is kept in the Palace Archive.
