About This Image

Étienne Carjat (March 28, 1828 in Fareins, Ain–March 29, 1906 in Paris) had been an actor, a journalist and a caricaturist before opening a photography studio in Paris in 1861. Although he achieved some recognition for his work, he was not successful financially and by 1876 had closed his studio. His portrait of the French author Charles Baudelaire is probably his most famous photograph. He co-founded the magazine Le Diogène, and founded the review Le Boulevard. He is best known for his numerous portraits and caricatures of political, literary and artistic Parisian figures. Another of his better-known works is the iconic portrait of Arthur Rimbaud, which he took in October 1871.
