Alte Pinakothek, Munich. 1852/53. Salt print. 21 x 28,5 cm. Mounted to board and annotated in ink below the image on the mount.

This photograph was taken in 1852 or early 1853, prior to the opening of the newly built Pinakothek, as one can easily see in this image. During the World's Fair (1851/52) at the Crystal Palace in London, Frederick Scott Archer (1813-1857) showed his new invention, the wet plate collodion process. Franz Hanfstaengl was one of the great German photographers who immediately experimented with it and produced good results, as this photograph shows. Because Scott Archer did not patent his invention, his process was immediately able to spread worldwide and was enthusiastically received by photographers. – Some light spots, otherwise a strong print in very good condition.
