About the Photographer

Le Bègue, René

French, 1857-1914

René Le Bègue was a French pictorialist photographer best known for his nudes. He was active in photography circles in Paris during the last two decades of the 19th century and into the 20th century. In 1988 he became a founding member of the Photo-Club de Paris, and in 1894 Le Bègue was invited to join the Linked Ring Brotherhood, an organization based in London that was pivotal in establishing pictorial photography as an international aesthetic movement.
