Rare Antique Lehnert & Landrock Héliogravure (Photogravure) Early 1900s SCENERY. This vintage photo measures 11.75 x 9.5 inches and is ready for framing. The photograph is in very nice overall condition pinholes in corners. It has the LEHNERT & LANDROCK logo in the lower left-hand corner with the number Nr. This is one of a large collection of. LEHNERT & LANDROCK original photographs that I will be listing. I believe that the are all from the 1920 – 1930’s. Their hand-tinted photographs featured Egyptian and Tunisian monuments and, more controversially, eroticized images of Arab women posed within harem scenes. Lehnert & Landrock’s photographs attempted to embody a romanticized vision of the Arab world held by Europe. The artists were Rudolf Franz Lehnert, born on July 13, 1878 in Velká Úpa, Bohemia, and Ernst Heinrich Landrock, born on August 4, 1878 in Reinsdorf, Germany. Upon returning from a trip to North Africa, Lehnert met Landrock in Switzerland and the two decided to go into business together. Lehnert acted as the photographer and Landrock organized the expeditions, photolab, and marketing of postcards, posters, and prints. They lived both in Tunis and Cairo but periodically made trips back to Europe throughout their lives. Today, their works can be found in the collections of the Penn Museum Archives in Philadelphia, the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, and the San Francisco State University Museum, among others. Lehnert died on January 16, 1948 in Reydef, Tunisia, and Landrock died on April 30, 1966 in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs”.
