Summary[edit]

Description
English: Portrait photograph of Victor Hugo published in the widely distributed serial publication entitled Galerie contemporaine, littéraire, artistique. Issued in parts from 1876 to 1884 by the firm of Goupil & Cie, the series contained 241 portraits of leading figures from the worlds of art, literature, music, science, and politics by a host of Parisian photographers. The illustrations were printed as woodburytypes–a photomechanical process that reproduced the continuous tones of photography but did so with pigmented gelatin molded to a varying thickness. The speed and economy with which woodburytypes could be printed, as well as their permanence (unlike traditional photographic processes that were subject to fading), made them a highly practical substitute for albumen silver prints in book publication or other situations where mass production was desirable.
Français : Portrait photographique de Victor Hugo publié dans la revue illustrée Galerie contemporaine, littéraire, artistique qui faisait partie d'une série publiée par Goupil & Cie. Parue entre 1876 et 1884, la série comprend 241 portraits de personnalités dans les domaines de l'art visuel, de la littérature, de la musique, de la science et de la politique. Les portraits, de photographes parisiens, étaient imprimés par photoglyptie, procédé opto-mécanique qui dégagait les parties claires des parties sombres, grâce à une gradation de tons continus. Sa vitesse et son faible prix, ainsi que la longévité des reproductions (les procédés concurrents produisaient des copies dont le contraste diminuait avec le temps), en ont fait un procédé prisé pour l'impression en grande quantité.
