Théodule Charles Devéria was a famous French photographer. As an Egyptologist he was engaged in the study of ancient Egyptian high culture. A large part of his photographic and lithographic work shows motifs from the country.

Théodule was born in 1831 as the son of the Parisian painter Achille Devéria. Already at a young age he discovered his interest in distant Egypt. He was twelve years old when he met Emile Prisse d'Avennes. The Egyptologist enthusiastically told about his scientific work in the distant country. Théodule then visited numerous museums to view exhibits from Egypt. After his school days, Théodule studied Arabic at the Collège de France and dealt with Coptic culture. In 1855 he published lithographs showing excavations in Thebes. Negatives of photographs were the basis for his lithographic works. In the same year he began to support the department for Egyptian antiquities of the Louvre as a staff member. He catalogued objects that the archaeologist Auguste Mariette had discovered during his excavations in Egypt and sent to France. Three years later, Théodule Charles Devéria himself travelled to Egypt for the first time. He supported Mariette during his excavations and helped to decipher inscriptions. It was important to him to document the evidence of Egyptian high culture precisely with the help of photographs and drawings. In 1860, a career jump began. Devéria became a conservation assistant in the Egyptology Department of the Louvre. In the years that followed, he repeatedly went on trips to the mysterious country. In the early 1860s he travelled up the Nile to the Philae region and to Nubia, where the Abu Simbel temples can be found. Immediately after his return to France, he assisted his colleague Mariette in describing the excavations that the archaeologist came across during his work in Egypt from 1850 to 1854.

In 1864 Devéria met the well-known Egyptologist Arthur Rhoné. One month later they decided to travel to Egypt again together with friends. During this time, further photographs and drawings were made, showing Cairo and Alexandria, among others. In 1868 Théodule Charles Devéria was appointed Knight of the Legion of Honour for his life's work. In 1871 he died at the age of only 40 years in his native Paris. His photographs are still important today, after all they are valuable contemporary documents that reflect the fascination for Egypt in 19th century Britain. At that time Egypt was under the increasing influence of the colonial power Great Britain. Socially, there was a strong interest in the excavations and archaeological work at that time. © Meisterdrucke
