Art and Photography: new images of art

In the mid 1800s, the documentary powers of photography were applied in systematic ways to works of art and architecture by photographers such as James Anderson, Adolphe Braun, the Alinari brothers, Roger Fenton and others.

Soon, large photography enterprises developed for the publication of art reproductions. The photographer took over, not without protest initially, the market of reproductions that belonged to printmakers and painters.
