[PHOTOGRAPH] Photographic portrait of Victor Hugo at Hauteville House
A Maurice, Paris 1878, 10.6 x 16.4 cm, photograph
Large original photograph on albumin paper, cabinet portrait size, laid down on thick card.
Photographer's advert to verso.
Rare photograph of Victor Hugo in his house, Hauteville, in the bosom of his library. The photograph shows the writer seated, hands crossed, looking at the photographer. The curtain can be seen at Hauteville House following restoration. In early summer 1878, Hugo had an attack of apoplexy in Paris and went back to Hauteville to convalesce. The photographer, André, took several shots of him at Hauteville. The interesting thing about these pictures is that they are not studio portraits. The glass plates were lated recovered by Alexandre Maurice, who printed from them in 1891.  A copy of this photograph is in the museum at Hauteville House.
