An overcast sky is complimentary in tone to the serious task at hand in this photograph: the transport of a funerary casket by gondoliers at the bottom of the frame on a Venetian waterway. Titled in German: Letzte Heimfahrt, this marine landscape view by German photographer Dr. H. Müller-Schönau was printed as a hand-pulled photogravure in 1900 and included in the important German publication Die Kunst in der Photographie.
Condition: very good.
Scattered areas of light foxing to plate margins with more of this visible on plate verso. Please inspect both photographs with listing. (please email if you require additional photos)
