Original photograph - Schalekamp, J.M. (1844-1912). Gorinchem. Kruisstraat. Amsterdam, J.M. Schalekamp, ca. 1890-1900. ca. 22.5 x 16 cm.

Very rare original photograph by Johan Marinus Schalekamp (1844-1912), one of a group of original photographs which were used to make a picture postcard. We have traced some of the executed picture postcards, greatly reduced images of our original photographs. Schalekamp was one of the largest (possibly even the first) publishers of Dutch topographical picture postcards around 1900. He was active in Haarlem (1870-1879); Amsterdam (1881-1893) and Buiksloot (near Amsterdam, 1893-1912). He had a photographic studio, a (photo)lithographic and book printing office from 1893 onwards. Not only did he print his own picture postcards and books, but he also worked for other publishers.

Very good copy. Provenance: Bought by a Dutch collector of photography in the 1960s, beginning of 1970s. Titled in pencil on verso. RKD; Wachlin 2011, Vol. 2, p. 517 (as: Schalenkamp, Johan Marinus).

Madrid: Aqui Esta, 1947. 1st Edition 1st Printing. No Binding. Good. On the death of the legendary Spanish bullfighter, Manolete, the Spanish magazine Aqui Esta published a memorial booklet/brochure upon the cover of which this print was tipped on. It is a popular image and the print would have been removed by many people at the time and framed. This example is unframed, measuring 17 x 25 cm approx. In Good condition, the image is clear. The margins are slightly soiled or marked and there are some minor marks and a touch of sunning here and there to the image as well. No nicks or tears to the edges. Some damage to the surface of the verso where the print has been pulled of at the top edge and the original glue or paste is still visible. For best appreciation of condition please examine the accompanying high-resolution image. Now a scarce item of Manolete memorabilia.

Description:
Against a stark horizon in a harsh climate, settlers in Nebraska everywhere erected monuments to their optimism. The buildings pictured in Dreams in Dry Places are not just famous landmarks like the State Capitol but also humble farmhouses, barns, grain elevators, courthouses, banks, churches, stores, and theaters. They represent every kind of architecture to be found in Nebraska--folk, high-style, commercial, residential, pioneer, and modern; the unexpected and the familiar, the poetic and the prosaic, good and bad. Caught by Roger Bruhn's camera, these structures always suggest the spiritual resources of their builders and inhabitants, who struggled for a livelihood on the Great Plains.Dreams in Dry Places has an architecture of its own, beginning and ending with images of the natural landscape and in between revealing unexpected continuities among disparate structures and settings, juxtapositions of forms, and the vanities and vagaries of architectural style. Exterior and interior shots are… Read More
