Auguste BELLOC (1805-1873), attributed to.... - Lot 31 - Marie-Saint Germain
Auguste BELLOC (1805-1873), attributed to. Study of an intimate female nude, 1853-1857. Stereoscopic daguerreotype finely enhanced in color, produced on 1/3 or 2/6 plate, 8.5 x 17.4 cm. The model is believed to be Sophie Joséphine Alexandrine Cardot, born in 1843. According to Denis Pellerin's research and BB3, Alexandrine was arrested for the first time in 1860, and sentenced to 15 days in prison. In October, she was arrested again. After a third conviction, she stopped modeling around 1861. In 1865, she married painter and photographer Jules Collard, brother of photographer Hippolyte Augustin Collard. It seems that she became a photographer for a few years. Her first husband died in 1867, and she married a Dutch merchant in 1889. Provenance: Serge Nazarieff Collection, Geneva.
