Abstract

This contribution presents the work of the three founding figures in French scholarship on music iconography. None of them was a scholar working in an academic milieu, but all of them played a prominent role in creating the foundation of this interdisciplinary field in France: Geneviève Thibault de Chambure was a musicologist, collector of music prints, manuscripts, and instruments, curator and concert organizer who initiated a public research collection of visual reproductions; Albert Pomme de Mirimonde, an autodidact art historian who published a prolific series of articles on artworks preserved mainly in French public collections; and François Lesure, a musicologist and librarian, who opened new perspectives in the sociology of music and the use of images in music studies, creating a collection of related monographs.
