The Wailing Wall
c 1860 - Albumen print. Good tonal range and in good condition; very light small stains at the bottom. Dimensions: photograph: 30 x 24 cm; frame: 46.5 x 40 cm. This impressive image of the Wailing Wall (the Kotel) was taken by James Robertson and his co-worker, Felice Beato. Robertson (1813 — 1888) was an English photographer and gem and coin engraver who worked in the Mediterranean region, the Crimea and possibly India. He was one of the first war photographers. In 1853 he began photographing with British photographer Felice Beato and the two formed a partnership called Robertson & Beato either in that year or in 1854 when Robertson opened a photographic studio in Pera, Constantinople. Robertson and Beato were joined by Beato's brother, Antonio on photographic expeditions to Malta in 1854 or 1856 and to Greece and Jerusalem in 1857. A number of the firm's photographs produced in the 1850s are signed Robertson, Beato and Co. and it is believed that "and Co." refers to Antonio. Robertson died in Yokohama, Japan in April 1888.
