Hans P. Kraus Jr. Inc., New York, will show the work of leading 19th century photographers including William Henry Fox Talbot. A brilliant scientist, Talbot conceived of the art of photography during the 1830s, combining the use of a camera obscura with light-sensitive chemistry. Unlike the other early photographic processes, heliography and the daguerreotype, Talbot’s negative-positive process on paper became the basis of all modern photography. A Fruit Piece, 1845 is an unusually fine print of the final plate in Talbot’s The Pencil of Nature.
