Biographical / Historical:
Born in Italy in 1841, Farsari moved to Yokohama from the United States in 1877 as a tobacco merchant, but soon delved into the art of photography. In 1885, Farsari purchased the Japan Photographic Association studio and stock from Baron von Stillfried. While a fire destroyed the entire stock, it was quickly reproduced within a matter of months, and Farsari moved his studio to where the Yokohama Photographic Company was located. A. Farsari and Co. would eventually become one of Japan's largest photography studios, with over thirty-one Japanese artists. Farsari eventually returned to Italy in 1890.

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.
Local Numbers:

FSA A1999.35 341
General:
Forms part of Rosin album number 1. Page 49.
Title taken from label affixed to bottom center of mount.
This album, with covers of lacquer and ivory, was produced by a shop which used photographs by Beato, Von Stillfried, Kimbei, and others, without including their descriptions or numbers. Each photograph is described by a label affixed below the print. The work is almost certainly by A. Farsari, who owned the stock of all of these photographs in the 1880s. Kimbei kept some stock he had purchased from Von Stillfried in his own shop. Confusion and uncertainty regarding attribution of 19th century Japanese photography is well-discussed in published material.

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.
