A FINE ALBUM DOCUMENTING THE AFTERMATH OF THE INDIAN MUTINY, AND IMPORTANT ARCHITECTURAL SITES IN NORTHERN INDIA.

A VERY FINE RECENTLY DISCOVERED ALBUM OF SOME OF THE EARLIEST KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHS OF INDIA.

Born to an aristocratic French family in 1825 (the son of an army colonel, Baron Prosper Amauri Louis, who was an officer of the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur), de la Grange studied in Paris before serving in the naval artillery from 1844 to 1847. In 1849, and following military service, he embarked upon a two year trip to India, Ceylon, Java, Malaysia and Singapore. He travelled with his statesman cousin, Felix Lambrecht, who detailed the trip in his book Souvenirs (1873).

De la Grange's superb images predate those taken during the British government's photographic surveys, and those by the acknowledged early masters of travel photography, such as Tripe, Biggs, Pigou and Neill. De la Grange apparently took his photographs, less than 70 of which are known to have survived, for his own pleasure rather than a specific commission, but he was seemingly connected with some of the pioneers in the medium, having taught Maxine du Camp his techniques.

In 1851 de la Grange returned to France where he is known to have assembled two albums, both entitled "Photographies de l'inde Anglaise". One, containing 61 images and manuscript notes by the photographer, was dedicated to the politician and historian Adolphe Thiers, a friend of Felix Lambrecht. The second album, now at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, contains 48 images. The present previously unrecorded album, presumably given to the Marquis Champagné-Giffart, is therefore a significant addition. Five of de la Grange's photographs were included in Blanquart-Evrard's first published collection of photographs, L'Album photographique de l'artiste et de l'amateur in 1851, but no further photographs can be attributed to him after this date.

After his return to Europe he entered politics, before retiring to his chateau in Seborg. He died in February 1917.

Images include: Benares: an English hotel bungalow, captioned 'specimen du habitation anglaise au Bengale' in the neo-classical style (4); Mirzapur: a temple (1); 'Palais de Dig' (1); Fatehpur Sikri: the Grand Mosque and tombs (3); Agra: the marble pavilion of Shah Jehan, the entry gate to the Taj, a general view of the Taj, a detail of the Taj, the Taj mosque and three views of Emperor Akbar's tomb (8); Sikandra: a view of the gate to the garden of Akbar's tomb, another view of the entrance to the garden, two general views of the tomb, and the entrance to the tomb itself (5); Delhi: the Grand Mosque, two views of a tomb, a view of the Tomb of Humayun, Qutb Minar, and a view of the ruins of Quwwat-ul-Islam (Qutb Mosque) (7); Lucknow: two general views, and a view of the Grand Mosque (3); Ajmer: the entrance to the Fort, and detail views of two houses (3): ?Oudjin: the pavillion of a palace, presumed to be the Red Palace at Jaipur, a detail of this palace, a house, and a view of a Muslim cemetery (4); Udaipur: the palace, and three views of a Hindu temple (4); Chittor: three view of a Hindu temple (3); Mundleysir: a Hindu temple (1); Adjunta: a view of the exterior of the Chaitya Cave (1); Ellora: two views of the caves (2).

Provenance: Champagné-Giffart (bookplate); Henri Pierre Briere (1897-1990), and thence by descent to the current owner.

CONTENT:
In recent years Felice Beato (1832-1909) has come to be recognized as one of the major photographers of the nineteenth century, yet until now there has been no general survey of his singular life and work. Born in Venice, Italy, Beato came of age in the Ottoman capital of Constantinople. As a young apprentice in 1856, he photographed the sites of the Crimean War, thereby launching a long and remarkably adventurous career. Over the next half century he would follow in the wake of the British Empire: Egypt, Palestine, and Syria; India, where he photographed the aftermath of the Indian Mutiny; and China, where he chronicled the Second Opium War. He spent some thirty years in Japan and Burma, where he was among the first commercial photographers at the time that these countries were starting to open to the West. This abundantly illustrated book accompanies an exhibition-the first devoted to Beato's entire oeuvre-on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from December 7, 2010, to April 3, 2011. 
The text includes as main chapters:
  • a narrative of his life and entrepreneurial career and 
  • an on Beato and the photography of war. 
There is a selection of his photographs, including panoramas and hand-coloured Japanese studies, along with captivating period ephemera, lithographs based on his work, and humorous caricatures of the artist."

M. Ferenczy & Kincses Károly, Mandarin Ösvérháton[Mandarin on a mule]  Hopp Ferenc Fényképei, Hungary 1999. Softcover 20 x 23 cm. 156 pag. with 137 sepia coloured photo's. Text Hungarian, photo captions and short introduction also in English.

PHOTOGRAPHS:
The catalogue contains besides photo's of Ferenc Hopp and family around 60 photo's of mostly Asia[nearly all made in 1903:China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia. Some photo's of Africa[Camaroun, Liberia, Congo] and the Orient[Egypt, Syria, Palestine] 
CONTENT:
The name of Ferenc Hopp (1833-1919), a wealthy optician, patron of the arts, globe-trotter and art collector, has become known far and wide through the Museum of Eastern Asiatic Arts in Budapest. His career, remarkable in the present age, was not particularly unusual in the rapidly modernizing Hungary of the 19th century. But despite his fame, his multifarious activities are little known. For example, few are aware that he was a passionate photographer, and that, as the owner of the optical firm Calderoni and Co., he contributed substantially to the development of photography in Hungary. During his trips round the world he took a large number of photographs, building them up into a collection. In his will he left the overwhelming majority of these to the Hungarian Geographical Society. This part of his estate perished: along with the Society's archive was destroyed in 1944, by a direct hit from a bomb during the siege of Budapest. Fortunately, Ferenc Hopp's art collection, photographs and documents have survived in the villa housing the Museum.
Ferenc Hopp made 5 round-the world trips:
  • 3/09/1882 - 20/08-1883
  • 10/05-24/07 1894
  • 29/04-2/09 1903
  • 03 / 09 1905
  • 07/11/1913 - 25/07/1914

With regard to old Asian photography the catalogue contains 29 photo's of Asia nearly all made in 1903:
China[3]: no.'s 31, 124, 126, 
Siam[1]: no.56,
Japan[9]: no.'s 59, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111

"Journalist and photographer Viktor Mussik (1899–1952) travelled to
many Asian and African countries in the 1920s and 1930s. His photographs are a
typical example of documentary photojournalism – they have no artistic ambitions,
but capture a particular state of affairs at a particular moment in time in a particular
country. Given the period in which they were created, and Viktor Mussik‘s great
talent for observation, his photos are among the best collections in the National
Museum – Naprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures. After the
Second World War Mussik was accused of collaborating with the German occupiers,
and although he was later rehabilitated, he was unable to continue working as
a journalist."
