Processing History

Biographical/Historical Note

Photographs in this collection are by György Klösz, Oscar Kramer and Joseph Löwy (1832-1902). Not much is known about Kramer and Löwy other than that they were both Austrian and that Kramer was active from 1867 to 1869.
The Hungarian photographer György Klösz (Johann Georg Justus Kloess) was born in Darmstadt, Germany, in 1844. Klösz moved to Vienna after his education and worked in a photography studio. In the 1870s he was one of the first Hungarian photographers to take photographs outside of the studio. He captured almost 260 photographs of the city of Budapest.

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection is comprised of sixteen photographic prints of exterior and interior views of the Vienna International Exposition. Included are a view from the west of the Industry Palace, which was one of the largest civic buildings built in Vienna at the time; the South gate to the Industry Palace; the Monaco, Kaiser, Swedish Hunt, and the Russian Kaiser Pavillions; and the east gate to the Art Hall. Three photographs show sculptures by Italian artists.
Fourteen mounts bear a letterpress crest above the image with text: Viribus Unitis. The photographs are numbered and captioned in the negative in German. All but two mounts are printed with the name of the exposition in German, French and English below the image, along with the credit: Photographie und Verlag der concessionirten Wiener Photographen-Association. Titles and signatures are transcribed from the negative. None of the photographs are dated. Cataloger’s notes are in brackets.
