About

Original Title: Par O. Schoefft photographe de la Cour au Caire decoré par S.M. l'Empereur d'Autriche. This is a rare collection of 25 cards: sepia color albumen photo original photographs realized by the Hungarian photographer Otto Schoefft (1833-1900) during the 19th century Egypt and mounted on cardboard. Each photograph representing a detailed anthropologic study of popular Egyptian figures and crafts.,is hand-titled in black ink and in Italian on the lower margin at the center, under the glued photo. Each card on the back has the logo and the inscription " O. Schoefft Photographe de la coeur d'Egypte" printed in red ink at the center. An exotic and vintage collection of Arab dancers, bedouins, barbers is perfect to realize a virtual journey to the colonial disappeared Egypt! Including the original cardboard wrapped, in very good conditions, except for usual yellowing of the paper and signs of the time. Otto Schoefft was a Hungarian photographer who worked mostly in Egypt, in particular in Cairo. His first works were exhibited at the Viennese Photography Exhibition of 1873, and were reviewed by Alphonse Davanne (co-founder of the Société Française de Photographie 1854) as followed: "Scènes orientales et d'Egypte, très artistique". Soon he could boast of the appellation Photographe de la Cour du Caire. Even though he was mentioned in many contemporary publications, his photographs are not well known. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
