Victor Hugo (1802-1885) is one of the most famous French writers, mainly for his works Notre-Dame de Paris (1831) and Les Miserables (1862). Renowned as an engaged writer, he made major political speeches where he defended the ideals of justice, freedom and peace, against the death penalty and in favor of women. He became friends with Etienne Carjat (1828-1906), a French photographer, who interacted with great artists of his time, especially writers. The famous photographs he took of Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, George Bizet, Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo remain sought after by collectors and museums around the world.

With this emblematic photograph, Etienne Carjat managed to show all the strength and depth of Victor Hugo, whose life and work inspire French people of all ages and social classes to this day. This edition, due to its period and high quality, deserves the attention of a careful collector, an amateur of photographs that portray the depth of the great men of our History.
