Studio Tableaux Of Aboriginal Mother And Sleeping Child

1873/1890s. Group of three works consisting of one image printed in three different mediums:

(1) Albumen paper photograph, numbered “8” in negative lower right, 19.6 x 14.3cm. Slight silvering to edges, old retouching;

(2) Toned silver gelatin photograph with trimmed caption “Australian Ab[originals” in negative lower right, 41.1 x 20.8cm. Stains to upper centre, missing portions, tears, creases, trimmed left and right edges;

(3) Colour photo-lithograph with text including caption “Aboriginals, Australia”, 37.1 x 29.2cm. Tears, crinkles, stains and wear to margins.

.

Text in lithograph includes “Phillip-Stephan Photo Litho and Typographic Process Co. Ltd, Sydney, NSW.” The image was photographed in 1873 as part of a series of studio tabloids on the Aboriginal people in the Grafton area in NSW. The series was printed from the 1870s to the 1880s. Lindt revisited the series again during the 1890s, experimenting and enlarging images. The smallest image in the group, the albumen paper photograph, would have been printed in the late 1870s at the original size of the negative. The enlarged silver gelatin photograph is a rare surviving example of Lindt’s experiment with sizing and was most likely printed around 1890. The lithograph, created during the 1890s, was produced by a multi-plate colour process invented by Phillip Stephan, and was most likely based on the enlargement of the original negative.

This is a unique and rare group of Lindt’s work.
