Biographical / Historical:
Born to a family of textile merchants in Kofu, Yamanashi Prefecture, Kusakabe Kimbei moved to Yokohama in 1859. Although unclear, Kusakabe apprenticed under either Felice Beato and/or Raimond von Stillfried (Bennet, T. (1996) Early Japanese Images. Charles E. Tuttle Company: Rutland, Vermont and Tokyo, Japan.) Kusakabe managed a studio in Yokohama, first at Bentendori until 1881, then later at Honcho. His photo studio was well received by many, including foreigners.

Biographical / Historical:
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.

A Japanese colorist sits amongst paper scrolls and half finished photographs. Two Japanese print screens are propped against the shoji screen in the background.
According to Henry Rosin, this photo was taken in Beato's studio before it was purchased by Baron von Stillfried. The shoji screen in the background was used by Stillfried in many of his subsequent photographs.
Biographical / Historical:
Baron von Stillfried was an Austrian noble who arrived in Japan in 1868. In 1871, von Stillfried opened a photo studio in Yokohama under the name, Messrs. Stillfried & Co. In 1877, in partnership with Hermann Anderson, von Stillfried bought Felice Beato's studio and negatives, and continued to take photographs of Japanese people. He eventually left Japan for Hong Kong in 1881.

Scope and Contents:
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.
