Emil Otto Hoppé was a German-born British portrait, travel, and topographic photographer. He moved to London in 1900 to train as a financier, but took up photography and rapidly achieved great success. Hoppé's reputation attracted many important British and North American figures in politics, literature, and the arts. In the era before the first World War, Hoppé photographed many leading literary subjects and figures from the art world, such as Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, John Masefield, Léon Bakst, Anna Pavlova, Tamara Karsavina and other dancers of the Ballets Russes, Violet Hunt, Richard Strauss, Jacob Epstein and William Nicholson. In the early 1920s he was invited to photograph Queen Mary, King George, and members of the royal family
