Panorama of Palmyra. Louis Vignes.

Panorama of Palmyra

Around 1864. 15,9 x 64,6 cm, Album print on 3 sheet.

An extremely rare panorama print of Palmyra by Vignes. Vignes was a French admiral and one of the first photographers in the East.

Because of his familiarity with the Middle East, Vignes was selected to accompany the archaeologist and early photography enthusiast, the Duc de Luynes, on a scientific excursion in 1864 from Beirut to Palmyra and areas surrounding the Dead Sea. A selection of sixty-four of Vignes’s photographs from this trip were reproduced as photogravures by Charles Nègre for the pictorial atlas of Luynes’s Voyage d’Exploration à la Mer Morte (1875).
