Artist Charles Marville has long been acclaimed for his photographs documenting the now--vanished architecture of old Paris, before the city was modernized in the late 19th century. But few biographical details were known about the Frenchman until three years ago, when the National Gallery of Art announced that “Marville” was actually a pseudonym used by illustrator and painter Charles-Francois Bossu.
On Sunday, the museum opens “Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris.” The first U.S. exhibition on Marville not only reveals new information about the artist’s life, but also situates his best--known work in the context of his entire career.
