LAOCOON ENGRAVED REZZONICO, Carlo Castone della Torre di.
Discorsi accademici del conte … segretario perpetuo della R. Accademia delle Belle Arti.
First and only edition of an exquisite little product of the Bodoni house: Count Rezzonico’s reflections on the fine arts, including a dissertation on the techniques of woodcut and engraving. The Neo-Classical aesthetics that inform this work are reflected in the illustrations, masterfully executed by the painter, engraver and stucco artist Benigno Bossi. Perhaps the most remarkable is the depiction of the marble Laocoon, which had been made by Lessing the symbol of the aesthetic autonomy of poetry and painting.
[FARSARI, Adolfo, Studio of.]
Japanese flower seller.
A striking image of a Japanese flower vendor, with delicate contemporary hand colouring, most notably to the flowers. After time spent in America, where he fought in the Civil War, Adolfo Farsari (1841 - 1898) moved to Japan in 1873, establishing himself in Yokohama. In 1885 he opened his own photographic studio, subsequently touring Japan to create a portfolio of over 1000 images. The quality of his work and innovative approach to hand colouring brought him commercial success. His firm was the last important Western photography studio in Japan.
