Recalling high photographic vantage points notably executed by Alvin Langdon Coburn, some of the villas and castles most likely taken from the vantage point of the Belvedere of Tragara promenade on the Italian island of Capri are seen here in a 1909 landscape by American pictorial photographer Karl Struss. (1886-1981) This vintage Japan tissue, hand-pulled photogravure was included with Camera Work XXXVIII and published in 1912. The work (which has become unglued) is included along with its' native sheet of Enfield watermarked 1887 laid paper.
Condition: Excellent. Work is perfect but has become unglued from support. (please email if you require additional photos)
