After Louis Daguerre unveiled his photographic process in 1839, the technique was taken up with widespread enthusiasm and soon became enormously popular. But this new way of representing reality also excited controversy, particularly among artists, to whom it posed a unique challenge. Illustrated with hundreds of paintings and early photographs, this ground-breaking study examines the fraught relationship that developed between the two art forms across a range of genres, from portraiture and still life to landscape and the nude.
