DE MEYER, BARON ADOLPH (1868-1949) [Windows on the Bosphorus],
circa 1911. Vintage platinum print, 3 5/8 x 2 3/4 inches (94 x 72 mm), taken circa 1911. Image in generally fine condition. Hinged to mount and framed.
De Meyer's photograph Windows on the Bosphorus was published as a photogravure in Camera Work, XL, 1912 and subsequently appeared in Vanity Fair, May 1915. The present platinum print is a reduced cropping and, judging by differences in the reflections in the water (the facade is identically lit), may indeed come from another plate prepared by De Meyer at roughly the same time. From Anne Horton's note from a silver print of the Camera Work image "This photograph shows de Meyer's 'crumbling old house on the Asiatic side of the Bosphorus.'"
