Les Nadar
Paul Nadar, Sarah Bernhardt dans Pierrot assassin, vers 1883. BnF, département des Estampes et de la photographie.

Félix Nadar (1820-1910), his brother Adrien Tournachon (1825-1903) and his son Paul Nadar (1856-1939) were both photographers, painters, artists and inventors. Some 300 pieces reveal the specificities of each of the three photographers, of their collaborations and rivalries; the exhibition embraces the entire history of the Nadars’ studios over nearly a century. Presenting original photographic prints, drawings, engravings, paintings and objects, the exhibition invites to discover the legacy of one of the major and lasting studios of the early times of photography.
