19th Century

Celebrating 70 Years of Photography at Swann

Over 70 years ago, Swann held the first auction dedicated to photography in the United States. This 1952 photography auction was astonishingly early for a sale devoted to a medium just 113 years old and still finding its artistic footing in the marketplace. Seven decades later, however, the landscape for this diverse and innovative medium has grown dramatically. The past few decades bore witness to a blossoming market, with numerous galleries, auction houses, and a vibrant, devoted, passionate group of collectors spread around the world.

In 1952, albums and books illustrated with photographs dominated the sale at Swann. The sales results are shocking to a contemporary reader: a nearly complete set of Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion (with duplicate plates) sold for $250, and William Henry Fox Talbot’s Pencil of Nature for $200. The catalogue had no illustrations or estimates, and though the offerings were diverse, the medium’s early relationship with the book field is apparent.

Today we see a full spectra of photo books, contemporary photographs made to occupy an entire wall, small classical gems, and modernist masterpieces exploring abstraction in our auctions. To date, our Department’s top lot is Edward S. Curtis’ The North American Indian, which sold for $1.44 million. This market has expanded and flourished, and our auctions at Swann continue the tradition of groundbreaking exploration of the medium, most recently in our photo book and vernacular photography sales (introduced in 2006 and 2014, respectively). These sales advance the boundaries of what is sought and reconsider the ways in which we view and discuss photographic output.

Today we look both forward and backward. Back, to marvel at what has grown. Forward, to imagine what we can still build.

SIGNED BY MAHARAJA JAGAJIT SINGH

1

(india)
An album with 60 photographs celebrating the investiture of Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala.

This album represents one of the most comprehensive photographic depictions of a 19th century maharaja and his court. With his titles, riches, affairs, and estates, the Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala was internationally known as the epitome of Indian royalty. His coronation album includes both formal and informal portraits of Jagatjit Singh and his fellow princes, his administrators and distinguished guests, including Prince Albert Victor on a pig sticking expedition, taken three years before his death.

The album includes views of Jagatjit Singh’s palaces, private and public buildings, and the palace grounds. There are images of Kapurthala’s royal stable, his elephants (including his famously enormous state pachyderm), his horses (with a striking image of the Maharaja on his favorite steed), his dogs, durbars, tennis games, and remarkable images of His Highness’s servants pedaling Jagatjit Singh and his chihuahua in a velocipede and paddle boat. Included are views of the city market, temples, and a two-panel panorama of Kapurthala. Albumen prints, the images measuring approximately 9½x11¾ inches (24.1x29.8 cm.), and slightly smaller, and the reverse, mounted recto/verso, each with a caption, in ink, on the mount. Oblong leather folio, with the gilt-lettered title "Kapurthala;" with a new leather spine replacing the cloth spine that had been applied by Maria Brothers in Simla; signed by Jagatjit Singh in 1891 on the front free endpaper. 1890

Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala created an image of himself as a dashing, romantic figure. He became famous in his day for his spectacular gems and his secularism. He traveled the world, served as British India’s representative to the League of Nations, received 28 Grand Crosses.

Believing himself the incarnation of Louis IV, he spoke fluent French, built a palace after Versailles, hosted lavish parties in Paris and on the Riviera, and added a Spanish dancer and a Czech countess to his harem of four.

Though it appears that this album was meant to be a souvenir, we have not been able to locate another copy (including in the Kapurthala family’s collection, the Royal Collection, and the India Office Library).

Given the quality of the photographs, we propose the photographer may have been Lala Deen Dayal who at this time was the Viceroy’s official photographer.

Julia margaret cameron (1815-1879)
Baby Blossom (Portrait of Alice Keown).

Albumen print from a wet collodion negative, the image measuring 13⅜x11 inches (34x28 cm.), the mount 20½x17⅞ inches (52.1x45.4 cm.), with Cameron’s signature and notation “From Life Not Enlarged,” in ink, “Baby Blossom,” in pencil, in an unknown hand, and the Colnaghi blind stamp, on mount recto. Circa 1866

In the summer of 1865, Cameron began using larger format 15x12-inch glass negatives. She embarked upon a series of large-scale, close-up portraits, which she saw as a rejection of conventional photography in favor of a less precise but more emotionally compelling kind of portraiture. She wrote to Henry Cole that she intended this new series to “electrify you with delight and startle the world.”

There are no other prints known of this portrait of Alice Keown. She was the daughter of Thomas Keown, and Cameron also photographed her sister Elizabeth and brother Percy. Alice was not known as Baby Blossom, so it is thought that perhaps Cameron took the title from Ida White’s recently published poem.

This print was exhibited in Photographs from the Collection of Gary and Barbara Hansen, the Saint Louis Art Museum, June 23 - August 9, 1987

Around 1832 Parisian-born Charles-François Bossu (1813–1879) changed his unfortunate last name (“bossu” means hunchback in French) and adopted the pseudonym Marville, which also transformed his identity. By 1850 he began taking poetic photographs throughout Old Paris, a project that foreshadows the work of another great French artist, Eugène Atget.

Jeremiah gurney (1812-1895)
Three quarter-plate daguerreotypes, including two of siblings wearing plaid and third apparently depicting William Lewis Dayton.

Two of the cases show young children wearing identical plaids, each beautifully tinted in delicate red and in the same elegant pose; these both with Gurney’s 707 Broadway address stamped on the mat. The third apparently depicting the statesman Dayton, with the Gurney and Fredericks 349 Broadway address on the mat. Each in their brass mats and preservers; in leather cases. 1850s

Gurney was one of the pioneering practitioners of the daguerreotype process, opening the first American photo gallery at 189 Broadway in 1840. His work is known for its fine detail, and for a clientele base from New York City’s elite, building a reputation as the city’s leading daguerreotypist. In 1851, Gurney founded the American Daguerre Association—the first national organization of photographers.

By the early 1850s, he was housed at 349 Broadway, where he occupied nine rooms. In 1858 he built a three-story studio at 707 Broadway, apparently the first building constructed for the purpose of photography in the United States.

William Lewis Dayton was the first Republican vice-presidential nominee in 1856. Although his campaign was unsuccessful, Dayton proved to be a talented diplomat in his foreign affairs. Following his vice-presidential campaign, Dayton then served as the American ambassador to France. There, he successfully worked against the French recognition of the Confederate States of America. He was later appointed to Minister of France. Dayton served until his death in December of 1864 in Paris, France.

Mathew brady (1822-1896)
An album titled Delegates to the International American Conference with 44 photographs.

Washington, 1890

Albumen prints, each image measuring approximately 13x7¾ inches (33x18.4 cm.), inserted into 22 original gilt-lined mat leaves, some numbered lightly in pencil, and one (#17) signed by Brady in the negative; plus a printed contents leaf listing 41 of the sitters and their titles, with 4 others added in manuscript. Thick folio, original gilt morocco, tastefully rebacked and conserved, lacking one clasp, with alternate title “Album of Delegates to the International American Conference” stamped on front board; endpapers renewed. Washington, 1890

This album represents two important milestones: the end of Mathew Brady’s career as the most renowned American photographer of the 19th century, and the birth of what became the Organization of American States.

The American politician James Blaine (1830-1893), best known as the losing candidate in the 1884 presidential election, served as Secretary of State from 1889 to 1892. Blaine had an expansive vision of the nation’s role on the international stage, and convening the First International Conference of American States was one of his first accomplishments as the nation’s top diplomat. Held from 20 January to 27 April 1890, it brought together 27 delegates from 17 nations. A secretariat was established on 14 April which evolved into today’s Organization of American States. The date is still observed as Pan-American Day.

The work of photographing the delegates was given to Mathew B. Brady (1822-1896), revered for his pioneering work from 1844 through the Civil War. By 1890, he had gone through bankruptcy and was in poor health, just six years away from an ignominious death in a hospital charity ward. His most recent major commission had been an 1888 album of the members of the 50th Congress. He was later hired to produce a similar album of the 1891 Patent Centennial, but no examples are known.

Among the most well-known delegates represented here are Blaine, who leads off the album as portrait 1; wagon manufacturer Clement Studebaker, #22, and industrialist Andrew Carnegie, #25. Among the Latin-American delegates were two future presidents of Argentina, Manuel Quintana and Roque Sáenz Peña; and a former president of Ecuador, José María Plácido Caamaño. Philippe Hannibal Price of Haiti appears second in the volume. Delegates from Peru, Guatemala, Colombia, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Brazil, Honduras, Mexico, Bolivia, Venezuela, Chile, and El Salvador are also represented. The final image shows the Wallach Mansion on Massachusetts Avenue, where the conference was held.

Presented to Nicanor Bolet Peraza (portrait #30), a delegate from Venezuela; acquired by the consignor from one of his descendants.
