Gaspard-Félix Tournachon (Paris, 1820-1910) was known from his twenties onwards as Nadar. A medical student, journalist, writer, cartoonist and left-wing adventurer, he contributed greatly to the emergence of photography as a new art form.

He was born in Paris in 1820 and died there at the age of 90. He opened his first photographic studio in 1856 and portrayed a series of prominent personalities who brilliantly portrayed the political and social changes and the emergence of modernism in Paris. France, defeated on the battlefields of the Franco-Prussian War, showed its cultural superiority and greatness in the last third of the 19th century.

The catalogue of the exhibition reveals 41 images made from collodion photographic plates, using the same processes and authentic materials of the photographs by Nadar. The eminent representatives of European culture, otherwise known for their work, were brought before his lens, but Nadar's portraits also present their image. They include the writers Hugo, George Sand, Baudelaire, Zola and Turgenev, the composers Verdi, Rossini and Berlioz, as well as the painters Delacroix, Courbet and Manet.
