About This Image

With a blue corner mount. A very modern perspective that looks just like a good Atget. Reversed number at bottom right of image (761?). Rome - Villa Doria Pamphili, Garden Theater, stairway access to the Secret Garden of the Casino del Bel Respiro, especially with ornamental vases.

There is another copy in the Cugnoni collection at the archives of the Instituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione (Italian Ministry of Culture and Tourism). Apparently Valeriano Cugnoni put together a collection of Italian photographers from 1855 to about 1900. He sold the Instituto the collection in 1913. There are many photos from Ludovico Tuminello and Filippo Belli in the Italian part of the collection, and this image may be by one of them, or by one of the others in Charles Parker's Circle, like Simelli or Chauffourier.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
