Description: EADWEARD MUYBRIDGE (1830-1904)
The Horse in Motion (composite). Albumen print, the image measuring 4x7 1/2 inches (10.2x19.1 cm.), the original blue mount 4 1/4x12 1/8 inches (11.4x30.9 cm.), with a lengthy caption, in ink, in French, on mount recto. Circa 1878-81

Notes: Acquired from Harry H. Lunn, Jr., Washington, D.C., in the 1970s.

The lengthy explanatory and descriptive handwritten notations which appear on the original mount are in French and apparently correspond to Muybridge's 1881 visit to Paris. The notations describe the creation of the negatives, and state that they are absolutely unretouched. According to the authors of Moving Pictures: American Art and Early Film, 1880-1910 (Nancy Mowll Mathews and Charles Musser, Hudson Hills Press), Etienne-Jules Marey (whose chronophotographs were influenced by Muybridge), introduced the photographer to "an array of scientists, photographers, and intellectuals" of the day.
