With the introduction of the hand-held camera by Kodak and other firms around 1890, photography became instantly accessible to a large group of amateurs, among them writers and artists. Saskia Ooms examines how French and Dutch painters (like Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Édouard Vuillard, George Hendrik Breitner and Willem Witsen) used the camera around 1900 and discovered new ways of depicting the world around them and their intimate circle of family and friends.
The Manfred and Hanna Heiting Fund enables young researchers from all over the world to explore the photography collection of the Rijksmuseum. The results of these studies are presented each year in the series Rijksmuseum Studies in Photography, whose publication is also generously made possible by the Manfred and Hanna Heiting Fund.
