Arc House Cottage, Devonshire [UK]

c1926. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, titled in ink in two hands, various copyright and publication stamps verso, 23.4 x 19.4cm. Slight silvering, chips to edges and faint stain to upper right corner.

Stamps include “Copyright, E.O. Hoppé, London, please acknowledge” and “The Mansell Collection, 42 Linden Gardens, London W2. On loan.”

In 1954 Hoppé sold his body of photographic work “to a commercial London picture archive, the Mansell Collection. Hoppé’s work was interfiled by subject with millions of other photographs…Almost all of Hoppé’s photographic work— that which gained him the reputation as Britain’s most influential international photographer between 1907 and 1939—was accidentally obscured from photo-historians and from photo-history itself. It remained in the collection for over thirty years after Hoppé’s death and was not fully accessible to the public until the collection closed down and was acquired by new owners in the United States.” Ref: Wiki.
