[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.
