Tri portreta tatar. [Three Portraits of Tatar People].
Astrakhan early s 1870 - 3 albumen prints pasted on original cards, printed captions below, two bearing photographer's credit; two prints have minor scratches. Dimensions: app. 15 x 10.5 cm Three early portraits of the Tatar people taken by Vishnevskiy (fl.1860s-90s) that are likely to have been included in his album Astrakhan published in 1873. Working in his studio in Astrakhan from 1861, he was one of the first to produce photographic albums with views and characters of the province. Vishnevskiy presented one of such albums to Aleksandr II during his visit to Astrakhan in 1871 and in return received a diamond ring from the Tsar. Vishnevskiy's studio was a successful business, which after his death was run by his wife up until 1911. Being an important historical record, Vishnevskiy's portraits and views of Astrakhan constitute a significant part of the collection of the State Astrakhan Historical Museum.
