The year 1826 represents a significant break in the collective pictorial consciousness of humanity. In that year, the first light-resistant photography in the world came into being, at the country home of Joseph Nicéphore Nièpce in Chalon-sur-Saône. Since then, it has been possible to fix moments in their perceptible constellation in a way “true to nature”. Zsuzsa Csomor takes this up here, and lets a photorealistic painter, with all the possibilities of painting, interpret anew the scenery that was photographically captured then. Intensive studies of lighting conditions, vegetation and architecture at that time contribute to a genuine attempt at reconstruction in painting, which productively questions the apparent advantages and disadvantages of two classic artistic media.
