Enrico Van Lint began his art career, in the footsteps of his father, as a sculptor and art dealer. He became interested in photography most likely around the late 1840s. Alongside his portraits, Van Lint’s photo repertoire focuses above all on documenting the art and architecture of Pisa. Yet, some recently found prints prove Van Lint was interested in other cities, too, even though he was known exclusively in relation to Pisa. He also took pictures of monuments in Lucca, Pietrasanta, and Florence.
