About the Rotation
Eugène Atget trained his lens on the city and people of Paris for nearly four decades. The resulting photographic archive presents an enigmatic portrait of an evolving metropolis at the dawn of the twentieth century. This exhibition pairs over thirty photographs, printed from Atget’s glass plate negatives, with etchings, engravings, and lithographs by other artists to highlight photography’s role as a new medium of illustration in popular print media, architectural documentation, and the reproduction of artworks.

Organized by Taylor Bradley, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow in Prints, Drawings, and European Paintings, Blanton Museum of Art
