About this Item

Mexico, A. Briquet, Fot., ca. 1890. Original photograph, albumen print, 12,8 x 19,3 cm. Photograph 240 (420), Vistas, Mexicanos. Abel Briquet was master of photography in the French military academy of Saint Cyr and owned a studio in Paris that operated from the 1850s on. In 1876 he was commissioned by a Mexican railway company to photograph the line between Veracruz and Mexico City and in 1880 the French steamship company La Compagnie Maritime Transatlantique commissioned him to photograph the port of Veracruz. This became the subject of a photo album Album de la Compagnie Générale Transatlantique, ligne de Saint-Nazaire a Veracruz published ca. 1883. Under the patronage of Porfirio Díaz, Briquet realized a series of commemorative albums, and he published a series entitled Vistas Mexicanas from 1880 to 1895. This was just one in a number of series that he published over a period of some twenty years that also included Tipos Mexicanos and Antiquedades Mexicanos, etc. Briquet is considered one of the first "commercial" photographers in the modern sense. It appears he stopped production sometime around the beginning of the Revolution in 1911. KEYWORDS:mexico/vera cruz/photo. Bookseller Inventory # 27688
