Background
The French photographer Eugenio Courret (1841-190?) was associated with the photography studio of Manoury y Ca. in Lima, Peru from 1861 until 1863, when he established the Fotografía Central studio with his brother Aquiles (Aguiles; 1830-?). Eugenio was the photographer and Aquiles managed the business that became known as Courret Hermanos. Aquiles left the firm in 1877. Eugenio returned to France in 1892, eventually selling the firm to Adolfo Dubreuil, whose family ran the studio under the Courret name until 1934.
