Théophile Gautier

Gautier went on, and wrote about a voyage to Spain in 1840. He also took a series of daguerrotypes there. It appears that he went to Spain in the hottest season because he felt this would give him the most authentic Spanish experience, and he slept in the patio of the Alhambra. This portrait resembles him greatly.

Gautier was a very interesting person with a very interesting set of activities, that I would like to study further.

Axé.
