Austrian painter and photographer who learned photography from his uncle Andreas von Ettingshausen (1796-1878). He accompanied the Austria-Hungarian mission to the Far East that commenced in October 1868 to establish commercial and diplomatic relations with the countries of the Far East (Siam, China and Japan). He stayed in Japan for around 7 months (Aug/Sept 1869 - March 1870) and used local studios for his photographic work including Hikoma Ueno studio in Nagasaki and the Renjo Shimooka studio in Yokohama. His large format works are rarely seen but his stereoviews can be found including his sets:
  • Ansichten von Gibraltar/Vues de Gibraltar (Die Expedition, 1868)
  • China und Japan/Le Chine et Japon (1869-70)
  • Siam und Cochinchina/Siam et la Cochinchine (1869-70)
  • Singapore und Borneo/Singapore et Borneo (1869)
  • Le Tour du Monde/Reise um die Erde (1872, North Pole Expedition)
(With information from Terry Bennett, and the stereoview sets information from: www.baxleystamps.com)
