Art and Photography: Forerunners and Influences.
Written by Heinrich Schwarz. Edited and with an introduction by William E. Parker.
Peregrine Smith, Layton, Utah, 1985. 158 pp., 6x9".

Heinrich Schwarz was the first art historian to write a scholarly monograph on a photographer--David Octavious Hill--in 1931. He was also the first art historian to write about the relationship between art and photography, taking photographers as seriously as artists. This collection of essays includes "Before 1938: Symptoms and Trends," "Vermeer and the Camera Obscura," "Daumier, Gill and Nadar," and "On Photography." A long overdue publication of the work of this imminent scholar.
