        WILLIAM RAU Horseshoe Curve Pennsylvania Panorama

        Est: $600 - $900

        WILLIAM H. RAU Horseshoe Curve, Pennsylvania, 1890s,15.2 x 58.7 Gelatin Silver Print. ASG# WHR/1003 William H. Rau (1855-1920) grew up in the photography business. His father George Rau had a studio in Philadelphia as did his uncle William Bell (who had photographed in 1872 on the Wheeler Geologic Expedition in place of Timothy O'Sullivan). He purchased Bell's stereograph and lantern slide company in 1877 and sold it in 1901 to Underwood & Underwood. Having been interested in photography from a young age, William H. Rau received his greatest early career boost from his association with photographer William Bell. Rau married Bell's daughter Louise, also a photographer, and in 1874 Bell secured a position for his nineteen-year-old son-in-law. Rau became the photographer for a United States government expedition traveling around the world to observe the transit of the planet Venus as it passed in front of the sun. Rau's next assignment was to conduct the first systematic photographic recording of the Rocky Mountains. Soon thereafter he traveled to Egypt, where he applied the techniques he had learned photographing the Western American landscape. Together with his brother George, he opened a photographic studio in Philadelphia in 1885 and flourished as a portrait photographer. In addition to proper studio shots, he photographed images of young ladies in their bloomers and corsets-risque material during the Victorian era. Between 1890 and 1895, Rau served as the official photographer of the Lehigh Valley Railroad in Pennsylvania. Toward the end of his career, he was chosen to develop the photographs that documented Robert Peary's journey to the North Pole. His family continued to operate the studio after his death.http://www.getty.edu/art/collection/artists/1705/william-h-rau-american-1855-1920/
