Thank you very much for this wonderful
After viewing quite a few of the works, I
noticed that most or all are labeled as gravures.
So do you know if any of the original gum
prints still exist as part of the collection?

Have a look at Allan Griffiths' Luminous
Lint website :
and search for dichromate Gum in the
alphabetical search in the "Techniques" part of the site. this will
lead you to some photographers and some of their gum pictures (around 1898)
: Clarence White, Heinrich Kühn, members of the "Linked ring
Brotherhood", gertrude Kasebier, etc.
Another resource is the Paris Musée d'Orsay
(devoted to XIX century arts);
Go to the research page :
"gomme bichromatée" in the
"General search" field,
check the "Photography" box
in "Disciplins" fields
type 1885 and
1905 in the "De" and "to" "work
You will get 93 results by Puyo, Demachy, Steichen,
Le bègue, White, Hoffmeister...
"Autoportrait en casquette et fumant la pipe" is dated 1889 !
Hope it helps ! bonne chance!

I am putting together a talk on gum printing for the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society
and 1890 was the year it started
Are there any online sources of gum prints from this time or around this time?
