The Metropolitan Postcard Card of New York explains: Many of his early cards were photo reproductions of drawn, painted, or sculpted artworks printed in halftone lithography. Luxochrom or Luxographie was the trade name used by Noyer for these art cards. Noyer was a member of the Salon de Paris. He photographed paintings for the Salon and other institutions for the production of art cards. While many cards carry his distinctive logo or his name, others are just marked AN.
