Portrait of Marcellin Berthelot (1827-1907) likely taken by Eugène Pirou (1841-1909). Berthelot was a French chemist, historian, and politician. His work in chemistry focused on organic synthesis and thermochemistry.
The probable photographer, Pirou, was a French photographer and filmmaker, known for his portraits of famous Parisians. In 1898, his studio was sold and the new owners used Pirou's name without his permission. Because the exact date of the portrait is unknown it is uncertain who owned the studio at the time of creation.
