Exhibition of Yosemite photographs, 1867 Paris Exhibtion Universelle
Albumen print, 1867
9-10/10; 180 x 240mm, mounted
$2500.

The print is on the official exhibition mount of Pierre Petit, who acquired photographic rights to the 1867 Exhibition Universelle. The actual photographers, however, working for Petit, were Léon & Lévy. Many photographs are visible in the image, apparently displayed in the 'Minnesota' stand, including mammoth plates of Yosemite Valley. Unfortunately, unless someone is very keen-eyed, it is not possible to discern if the California photographs in this photograph are by Watkins, Lawrence & Houseworth or someone else. The period literature is somewhat unclear. It seems that both of the aforementioned American photographers exhibited at the 1867 Paris exhibition and possibly both won prizes.
