Lindsay Koso ’15 on Belloc

This podcast is part of Watson Conversations, a growing collection of podcasts produced by Wheaton students as part of Art History 298: Photography as Knowledge.

Auguste Belloc
Female Nude
Salt Print from a Calotype Negative

Purchased with the Kenneth C. and Louise McKeon Deemer ’33 Fund

Salt prints are distinct in their appearance because the photographic chemicals seep into the fibers of the paper, softening the image. As Lindsay Koso ’15 suggests, Belloc deliberately embraced this effect, to give his Female Nude a more painterly appearance.
