Los 4081

[*] Still life with statuette, fruit and various objects. 1860s. Albumen print in oval. 34 x 28 cm (52 x 42 cm). Flush-mounted to card, mounted to original board (soiling, edge wear) with photographer's blindstamp below image on the mount.

Born in Vienna, Ferdinand Küss was a successful painter known for his artfully composed still lifes. He later turned to photography and founded his first studio in Vienna in 1859. The still life offered here shows a strong painterly composition and most likely served as a model for a painting. – Some retouching, some surface rubbing, slightly faded in edges, otherwise a strong print in very good condition.

In 1852 Louis Alphonse Davanne, Lerebours and Joseph Lemercier experimented with Joseph Nicéphore Niépce's asphalt process.

Because only a few prints could be made using this process, it was soon replaced by a new process developed by Alphonse Louis Poitevin. – Foxing in margins, otherwise in good condition.
