Scope and Contents:
"The photo is of Riza Khan in the position of Iran's prime minister accompanied by Boris Shumyatsky, the Russian ambassador to Iran between 1923 and 1925. Riza Khan later founded the Pahlavi dynasty in Iran. Initially an officer of the Cossack Brigade and a brigadier general in later years, Riza Khan quickly rose to power during the final years of Qajar dynasty, becoming first the minister of war and later the prime minister of the last Qajar King, Ahmad Shah. After Ahmad Shah's deposition in November of 1925, to which the congress rulled under heavy pressure from Riza Khan, Riza Shah took his imperial oath and became the Shah of Iran. His coronation, however, happened a few months later, in April of 1925. This photo is taken during his term as the prime minister and during Shumyatsky's appointment in Iran. The image is part of a series of images that show Shumyatsky accompanied by various religious and official groups, including another image of him and Riza Khan amongst the later's members of cabinet. (Neg.27.7, Neg.27.6)." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Curatorial Research Assistant]
- FSg curatorial research specialist remark on Antoin Sevruguin photo manipulation reads, "Traces of varnish around both figures' faces."
- Handwritten information on slip of paper (from a 1943-1944 cash book, produced by the Bathni Brothers, Tehran) reads, "48) Reza Pahlevi and Russian Ambassador." [Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information]
- Myron Bement Smith handwritten caption in English reads, "47.P; Box 26.1: Reza Pahlavi and Russian ambassador (# 48)." [Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information; Box 60; Folder 44: 47 P: Antoine Sevruguin, glass negatives, Iran]
Arrangement:
According to Myron B. Smith handwritten document (Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information; Box 60; Folder 44: 47 P Antoine Sevruguin, glass negatives, Iran), Antoin Sevruguin's 696 glass negatives, at the time of their acquisition, were arranged into 61 boxes without any apparent organization. Today they are housed in archival document boxes, essentially duplicating the original arrangement, and stored on shelves. This glass negative was included into "Box 26."
Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin is one of the early pioneers of commercial photography in Iran. He arrived in Iran from Tbilisi, Georgia in the mid 1870s to set up shop in Ala al-Dawla street in Tehran. From the early days, Sevruguin's studio was trusted both by the Qajar court and by foreign visitors to Iran. Highly regarded for their artistic ingenuity outside Iran, Sevruguin's photographs of 'ethnic types,' architecture and landscape, and depictions of daily life of Tehran found their way into foreign travelogues, magazines and books. As such, he stands alone in a relatively large group of early Iranian photographers for being recognized and celebrated outside the boundaries of the country. Antoin Sevruguin passed away in 1933, leaving behind only a fraction of his large collection of glass negatives, which is currently in the Archives of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.

Scope and Contents:
"The structure dates to Nasir Al-Din Shah's time. After the expansion of Tehran, which started in 1867, six gates were added to the city walls of Tehran, one of the most elaborately designed one of which was Darvaza Dawlat. The gate was built in 1871 by Mohammad Rahim Khan 'Ala al-Dawla (Amir Nizam). and at least until the end of 1870s, it had the central archway facing the city and the goat heads of the central top piece on its other side, facing outside the city. During a reconstruction in 1880s the archway of the internal side, along with the goat-heads of the external side were removed. This photo is of the gate when it had both features. The winter view of the road ending to the gate from the city allows a rare view of the surrounding area. Located on the north side of the wall, Darvaza Dawlat, along with Shimiran and Yusif Abad Gates, marked the northern boundaries of the city. The view of the gates usually differed from the side facing the city to the side facing the outside. Almost all of the twelve gates of the city were torn down during the later expansion of Tehran in 1930s." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Curatorial Research Assistant]

"The tower is attributed to Seljuk times. Myron Bement Smith refers to it in his own photographic archives (Box 82 of 250). In his description of the photo however, he mentions there are no numbers on it. The negative has a scratched number. The note is date to June of 1936. The image does not appear to have a number in the publication." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Curatorial Research Assistant]
- FSg curatorial research specialist remark on Antoin Sevruguin photo manipulation reads, "Red ink covers the sky all the way down to the edges of the structure."
- Scratched handwritten number (inked, probably by Antoin Sevruguin) reads, "1706."
- Myron Bement Smith handwritten caption in English reads, "47.P; Box 26.8 (P) [black-and-white print on hand]. Tehran. Rayy. Mausoleum (# 214)." [Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information; Box 60; Folder 44: 47 P: Antoine Sevruguin, glass negatives, Iran]
Arrangement:
According to Myron B. Smith handwritten document (Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information; Box 60; Folder 44: 47 P Antoine Sevruguin, glass negatives, Iran), Antoin Sevruguin's 696 glass negatives, at the time of their acquisition, were arranged into 61 boxes without any apparent organization. Today they are housed in archival document boxes, essentially duplicating the original arrangement, and stored on shelves. This glass negative was included into "Box 26."
Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin is one of the early pioneers of commercial photography in Iran. He arrived in Iran from Tbilisi, Georgia in the mid 1870s to set up shop in Ala al-Dawla street in Tehran. From the early days, Sevruguin's studio was trusted both by the Qajar court and by foreign visitors to Iran. Highly regarded for their artistic ingenuity outside Iran, Sevruguin's photographs of 'ethnic types,' architecture and landscape, and depictions of daily life of Tehran found their way into foreign travelogues, magazines and books. As such, he stands alone in a relatively large group of early Iranian photographers for being recognized and celebrated outside the boundaries of the country. Antoin Sevruguin passed away in 1933, leaving behind only a fraction of his large collection of glass negatives, which is currently in the Archives of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.

"The intial construction on the site of the holy shrine - with an octoganal plan - in Qum dates back to 13th century. In addition to northward expansion of the whole complex, the original octagonal dome was also modified into a round structure in the earlier years of Safavid dynasty. the southwest corner of the structure houses the tombs of more than a few of Safavid kings, including Shah Sultan Hussayn and Shah Safi. In the 1880s, the new courtyard to the shrine was ordered by Amin al-Sultan, during which the two grand minarets of the western iwan and the two smaller minarets of the entrance were also added to the complex. The golden dome is dated back to Fath Ali Shah-I Qajar, which is consistent with the other restorations to religious buildings of the time. The image depicts the vast cemetary in front of the Shrine of Fatima al-Ma'suma with visitors to the tombs. It was deemed a great honour and a privilege for people to be buried on the site of the two holy shrines in Iran, Imam Riza Shrine of Mashhad and Fatima al-Ma'suma shrine in Qum."

From the early days, Sevruguin's studio was trusted both by the Qajar court and by foreign visitors to Iran. Highly regarded for their artistic ingenuity outside Iran, Sevruguin's photographs of 'ethnic types,' architecture and landscape, and depictions of daily life of Tehran found their way into foreign travelogues, magazines and books. As such, he stands alone in a relatively large group of early Iranian photographers for being recognized and celebrated outside the boundaries of the country. Antoin Sevruguin passed away in 1933, leaving behind only a fraction of his large collection of glass negatives, which is currently in the Archives of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.

Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin is one of the early pioneers of commercial photography in Iran. He arrived in Iran from Tbilisi, Georgia in the mid 1870s to set up shop in Ala al-Dawla street in Tehran.
