A photogravure of Ludgate Hill with St Paul's Cathedral. Coburn was an American art photographer who settled in London in 1912. He was a leading exponent of the 'pictorialist' movement in photography and was heavily influenced by impressionism in painting. The pictorialists tried to make photographs look as much like paintings as possible. Coburn published 'London in 1909', a selection of his views of the capital, printed in photogravure.
1900 AD - 1909 AD
