Photography was still young in 1896, when French astronomers Maurice Loewy and Pierre Puiseux began studying the moon via the lens of a camera. Our prints reproduce a half-dozen of the 6,000 magnificent photogravures they published in 1910 in Atlas Photographique de la Lune, a landmark of astronomy and photography both. Reproduced with exceptional care, each print is true to the original's fine detail and beautifully defined tones, the hallmarks of copper-plate photogravure. Masterful reproductions of Loewy & Puiseux's groundbreaking photogravures. Captures the extraordinary clarity of the original images. True to the sepia tones the prints have developed over the last century. Expertly reproduced and giclée printed on archival acid-free paper. Framed behind Plexiglas® Wood molding has distressed black finish. RH Exclusive.
