Adolfo Farsari, and Anonymous, Untitled (Japan), 1870s-1890s

Lot 43: Adolfo Farsari, and Anonymous, Untitled (Japan), 1870s-1890s

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

Description: One print with photographer's name 'A. FARSARI & CO.' in the negative lower left."A private photo album from 1880 precisely and vividly mirrors the German-Japanese trade relations. Far from all touristical intentions, it displays every day life and particularly the social life of a German entrepreneurial family in Japan. [...] Although the original owner of the album remains unknown, the pictures do show that he socialised in circles of high-class merchants, that he may well have been a successful merchant himself, and that he had probably lived in Japan for a certain period of time. The large-format pictures come partially from the studio of the Italian Adolfo Farsari who kept his own photo studio in Yokohama since 1885 and where he worked until 1890. [...] The present album comprises a photo that mentions Farsari by name. It depicts the Spring Valley Brewery in Yokohama Yamanote, founded in 1870 by the American William Copeland. [...] Furthermore, we can see a typical pub with a tent and decorated with lanterns; Europeans sit with the locals in an intimate atmosphere surrounded by beer bottles. [...] Entrepreneurs and merchants had group pictures taken together with the locals in front of factories and during festivities. Garden parties during crocket games were outdoor leisure pursuits. The last picture in the photo album, also a group photo, illustrates a garden party at the Grösser merchant's family home on 24th April 1890. [...] Further pictures show favourite tourist destinations: to this day, the Buddha of Kamakura repeatedly forms the backdrop in front of which people like to be photographically perpetuated. The group poses in a standing or sitting position, dressed in the look of the European Gründerzeit [years of rapid industrial expansion in Germany at the end of the 19th century]. [...] Japan's change is reflected in this shot. They are a valuable historical testimony of the German-Japanese trade and friendship agreement." (cited from Claude W. Sui, Ein Fotoalbum als Zeitdokument deutschen Lebens in Japan, in: l.c. pp. 29-36)

Condition Report: Some prints slightly yellowed along the edges. The album pages with traces of usage and - in parts - with foxing. Binding and lacquer cover with slight traces of usage due to age, the binding in parts renewed.
