Etienne Jules Marey

Marey, Étienne Jules


Born Mar. 5, 1830, in Beaune, department of Côte-d’Or; died May 15, 1904, in Paris. French physiologist; member of the Paris Academy of Sciences (1878). Professor at the Collège de France (from 1867).

Marey’s chief works were devoted to blood circulation and the physiology of movements in animals and humans. He developed a method for the graphic recording of physiological processes. He constructed a device (Marey capsule) for automatically recording the movements of animal organs and a number of devices for photographing movements; he improved devices for the graphic registration of the activity of the heart (cardiograph) and the pulse (sphygniograph). Using new methods, he defined more accurately the performance of the organism’s motor functions (such as muscular work while walking or running).

As a whole the book suffers slightly from the lack, in all of the three component works, of a guiding question with which to hold the attention of the reader, from the high number of lengthy quotations (often, in spite of the book's length, left unelucidated), and such errors as Nora Joyce for Nora Barnacle, Jules-Etienne Marey for Etienne-Jules Marey, the Kinematograph for Edison/Dickson's Kinetograph, and the invention of The Art of the Photoplay as an alternative title for Hugo Munsterberg's The Photoplay: A Psychological Study.
Duchamp's interest in the work of Etienne-Jules Marey has stood as an example of the way painting looked to technologies connected to the development of film for hints about incorporating movement in traditionally static pictorial art.
