Cartea de vizită fotografică, şicul militar şi impozanta crinolină în al doilea imperiu francez / The carte-de-visite picture, military elegance and imposing crinoline gown during the Second French Empire
|Limba de redactare||română|
|Excerpt||Photography flourished during the Second French Empire. In 1854 Disdéri patented the carte-de-visite picture. Like a decade ago with the daguerreotypomanie, a carte-de-visite craziness ensued. Everybody wanted to be portrayed and collected portraits of the great men of the day. All the fashionable ladies took their likenesses clad in the latest crinoline gown. Militarymen also posed when they were promoted or before leaving for war.
Beside the dissolution of the Second Empire, the Prussian victory in the
war of 1870 was culturally resented too: as hard as it was, the French cartoonists made fun of the victors and deplored the fall of a gilded era which disappeared in the empire’s ashes.
