Rudolf Herrmann operated an atelier at Wintergartenstrasse 4, parterre (street level), Leipzig, throughout the 1880s and 1890s. Performers from the Oper Leipzig came to his portrait studio during the period that Max Staegemann was opera director (1882-1905). Staegemann had engaged Gustav Mahler as operatic conductor from 1886 until 1888 for Oper Leipzig. The Herrmann atelier production was almost totally devoted to the making of cabinet cards and there are a number of stage personalities who posed in costume before his camera.
