WHITE, JOHN CLAUDE (1853-1918) [Tibetan Monastery and Landscape, Lhasa and Tibet, 1905].
Platinum print on wove watercolor paper, 7 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches (185 x 310 mm), unsigned (as usual). Some finger soiling to the surrounding margins, the image fine. Framed.
John Claude White was assigned (somewhat against his will) to Younghusband's Tibet Frontier Commission. His photography of Tibet is of an exceedingly high standard, and he was "probably one of the last, and certainly among the most impressive products of a tradition of quasi-amateur photography which had flourished among administrators and military personnel in India since the 1850's." - John Falconer. With Throckmorton Fine Art.
