AVANZO, B. Hand-coloured original photographic albumen print of part of the centre of the city, taken across the Moskva. Moscow, B. Avanzo, [c. 1890].
220 x 275 mm, rubber-stamped B. Avanzo. Moscou. Specialité des Photographies on verso; tiny closed marginal tear, otherwise very good.
The photographer Avanzo was active from the 1870s to around 1900, and his photos, especially rather large ones are very rare and distinguished by their clear definition and fine tonal range, with added fine hand-colouring.
