A VICTORIAN CRYSTOLEUM SIGNED AND ATTRIBUTED TO FRANZ HANFSTAENGLE (C)

A charming continental street scene of attractive young people seemingly engaged in courtship - a hand coloured photographic print onto glass.
Stamped F.Hanfstaengle 1908 Munchen. This is one of a series of 3 which all appear to be posed by the same models in a classical continental village complete with well. It appears to be a collection of a person who just loved them and bought them and framed them as and when he sourced them. The frames which all appear to be early 20th century have labels from various places and the dates vary on the images. This particular medium, which is a photographic image backpainted  onto glass, was very popular from the late 19th century to 1915 when it became impossible to source the materials and so died out. Hanfstaengle(see Biography ex Wikipedia) was one of the leaders in this field but by this time appears to have passed the business on to his son. It is a medium that shouts Victorian but is also very attractive. What I love about these is that this process involved a lot of artistic intervention and was not just a simple copy.
Please note that this is one of a group of four similar pictures from the same source, available as single or multiples.
 
BIOGRAPHY;
Hanfstaengl originated from a commoner family and in 1816 came on the recommendation of the town-school-teachers into the drawing-class of the leave-day school at Munich led by Hermann Josef Mitterer. He was instructed in lithography, he had contact with Alois Senefelder and studied from 1819 to 1825 at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. In 1826, he went to Dresden and began his great work, completed in 1852, of copying in lithograph the canvases of the Dresden Gallery. Between 1835 and 1852 Hanfstängl brought out about 200 lithographic reproductions of masterworks from the Dresden picture-gallery, and published them in a portfolio. When he returned to Munich, he left his establishment at Dresden to his brothers Max and Hans.[2]
In 1833 he founded in Munich a lithographic establishment of his own, which he operated until 1868, and to which he later attached a fine art printing shop and (in 1853) a photographic workshop. Hanfstaengl won for himself much popularity as the portrait lithographer of Munich society, being nicknamed 'Count Litho'. Later, he became court photographer and produced portraits of distinguished persons, amongst others of the young King Ludwig II, of Franz Liszt, Otto von Bismarck and Empress Elisabeth of Austria. In 1858 Hanfstaengl tutored renowned French photographer Antoine Samuel Adam-Salomon.
He influenced his brother-in-law, the Austrian physician, inventor and politician Norbert Pfretzschner senior in the evolving of the photographic dry-plate in 1866. He was married to Franziska Wegmeier (1809–1860), by whom he became the father of Edgar Hanfstaengl. Another family member, Erwin von Hanfstaengl, in 1873 married the opera-singer Marie Schröder.[3]
