Catalogue Note

The large-format photograph offered here is a striking example of Dubreuil’s continuous innovation throughout his career.  Made in the mid-1930s, it is a thoroughly modern and imaginative new rendering of the negative for Au Luxembourg, Dubreuil’s celebrated image from 1912.  An exacting photographic technician, Dubreuil long favored contact printing his glass plate negatives.  The 1930s, however, was a period of intense creative output for Dubreuil and it was during this decade that he fully embraced the dramatic sense of scale only afforded by enlargements. 

At the time of this writing, no other print of this image in this enlarged format has been located.
