Similar work by Knapp is held by the National Gallery of Australia with the comment “Pictorialist photographers like Knapp were inspired by overseas models of art photography. Their prints often have the character of etchings from the use of screens and processes designed to replace camera sharp detail with softer atmospheric and emotional appeal. Where earlier photographers saw Perth in terms of clear light the Pictorialist photographers promoted a gentler vision.”
