La Bohème. In his novel La Bohème, Henry Murger describes for the first time the history, life and struggle of poor artists in bourgeois society. This was the beginning of the Romantic myth of the artist as an independent, anarchic figure, like the acrobat. This book brings together daguerreotypes and photographs of painters, sculptors, writers and actors, portraits and group photos, taken in the studio or on location, from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th. In addition to images by great photographers such as Nadar, Alois Löcherer, Wilkie Wynfield, J.M Cameron, Sander and Lux Feininger, the book contains many unusual images by unknown "masters"; edited by Bodo von Dewitz, black & white photos. Text in German. Published by Steidl to coincide with the 2010 exhibition at the Ludwig Museum in Cologne. The book is bound in new, original shrink-wrapped paper. Publisher: Steidl
