Notes:
Although he was born in Greece, Felice Beato worked as a press photographer in England and achieved recognition for his coverage of British political conflicts, photographing the Crimean War of 1855 and, together with his brother-in-law, James Robertson, the 1858 Indian Mutiny in Delhi and Lucknow. The images Beato took during this time are thought to be the first to depict actual human corpses on the battlefield. After moving to Yokohama in 1863, Beato opened the area's first photography studio and documented the people and culture of Japan for the next twenty years, taking photographs and selling them to tourists. During his travels, Beato was able to gain access to Japanese ports that were open only to diplomats by acting as an official photographer for the British navy.
Lake Ashi, or Ashinoko, is a crater lake that lies along the southwest wall of the caldera of Mount Hakone, an active volcano in the Hakone area of Kanagawa Prefecture in Honshū, Japan. The lake is popular with tourists because of its hot springs and views of Mt. Fuji.
Summary:
One albumen print, circa 1860s. Panoramic view by Felix Beato of Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) and surrounding mountains at Hakone, Japan.

From a Felice Beato album.
Felice Beato was born in Venice around 1825. During his lifetime, he accompanied the British troops in India, recording images of the Indian Mutiny in 1857, and the Franco-British troops in China to cover the end of the Second Opium War in 1859. With his friend Charles Wirgman, Beato opened a photography studio in Yokohama, Japan in the early 1860s, and produced many images of the Japanese and their lifestyle, as interpreted by the Westerners. Selling his studio to Baron von Stillfried in 1877, Beato eventually died in Burma around 1908.

Summary:
Three ornately dressed young women with powdered faces and dressed hair pose in an outdoor setting. A young girl dressed in rags stands to the right of the trio.
According to Henry Rosin, this print demonstrates Beato's artistry as as a master of capturing social conflicts.
This print is a pair with Baron von Stillfried's print of the same image, with the exception of the young ragged girl. (Rosin number 139) When von Stillfried purchased Beato's studio in 1877, he also purchased Beato's negatives, of which included "Three women and a girl." Since von Stillfried's studio was for commercial uses, he cropped out the young girl and cut the photo. Only very rarely can one find such clear evidence of the artistry of Beato and the commercialization of von Stillfried.

Felice Beato was born in Venice around 1825. During his lifetime, he accompanied the British troops in India, recording images of the Indian Mutiny in 1857, and the Franco-British troops in China to cover the end of the Second Opium War in 1859. With his friend Charles Wirgman, Beato opened a photography studio in Yokohama, Japan in the early 1860s, and produced many images of the Japanese and their lifestyle, as interpreted by the Westerners. Selling his studio to Baron von Stillfried in 1877, Beato eventually died in Burma around 1908.
