Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Frederick Hollyer (1838-1933) A group of Pre-raphaelite prints after Burne-Jones's Perseus series, John Everett Millais's The Knight Errant, Harry Bates's Cupid and Psyche, and others, 8 platinotypes, 3 with studio stamps on verso, 2 with extensive early biblical verse inscriptions verso and at edges of recto, c.1880, v.s., 160 x 165mm. (6 1/4 x 6 1/2 in) to 280 x 200mm. (11 x 8 in), unframed (8) ***Frederick Hollyer was from a family of engravers, but developed an interest in photography in the 1860s. His preferred process was the 'platinotype', or platinum print, for the rich tonal range it could convey. He collaborated closely with several artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, most notably Frederick Lord Leighton, Edward Burne-Jones and George Frederic Watts, and was considered to have been as important in promoting their work visually as Ruskin had been through his writing, even prompting the artists themselves to re-evaluate a work, and thereby recording early states that would otherwise be unknown to us..

(10 3/4 x 13 1/2 in). Exhibited with Agnew's, 'From the Pre-Raphaelites to Picasso', 1969, as an original pencil drawing by Burne-Jones, a note on the backboard recounting this was later disproved by Bill Waters; the platinotype then with Julian Hartnoll, 1973. Another exhibition note mounted on the backboard, from the Hayward Gallery Burne-Jones exhibition, 1975, states 'Hollyer also made a speciality of photographing Burne-Jones's work, especially the drawings, which he reproduced so faithfully that it is sometimes difficult to tell his prints from the originals'.

Lot 604: HOLLYER (FREDERICK)

Description: Autograph letter signed ("Fred Hollyer"), to his fellow photographer, Frederick H. Evans, praising his photographs of cathedrals, tombs and other buildings ("...It has indeed been a treat...not only on account of technical quality which are the most beautiful I have seen, but they convey the idea of the vast size & grandeur of the buildings...the light & shade is wonderfully rendered. You must have had some cheek to have ventured on a subject. How you got detail in the shadow is a marvel..."), and discussing his use of the platinum process and kindred matters of technique ("...a true Platinum print its got the true velvety mezzotinty platinum black... Yes, I have used the Buff Black, in fact the Company made me some in the first instance at my request. It is of great value in reproducing some of the Old Masters, & occasionally portraits from life...use a hot bath, many of them lack the rich touch of the pure black that I love so much on Platinum..."), 2 pages, 4to, very slightly creased and worn, Redhill, Surrey, 19 February, 1912
