COLLECTION CHRISTOPHEL: AN UNIQUE ICONOGRAPHIC HERITAGE
Because photos remain faithful witnesses to the past and present, because the media are always looking for illustrations, the Christophel Collection has become the French reference image collection for Cinema, Variety, Arts and History.
The Christophel Collection is initially a French collection specialized in cinema, then in fine arts and history. Since 2020 we have been the exclusive representative of the Lecoeuvre Photographic Library ("Lecoeuvre Photothèque"), which in just a few years has become the rightful owner and sole owner of a unique iconographic heritage of varieties at the service of professionals.
In parallel with Cinema, the Collection was enriched in 2015 with new collections on Theatre (Brigitte Enguerand Collection), History, Advertising Posters and Fine Arts (paintings, sculptures, engravings...).
The Collection contains several million images representing more than 200 000 films. We also represent more than 800,000 images of various collections.
