Seven photographs of art and architecture

Anderson, James



1850s - 1860s

James Anderson was born Isaac Atkinson in Scotland and studied painting in Paris. In 1838 he moved to Rome and began to produce sculpture as James Anderson, which remained his professional name. Eleven years later he took up photography, opening a studio in Rome in 1853. Anderson specialized in reproductions of works of art, publishing frequent catalogues of his work, but he also photographed views of Italy and antiquities. A contemporary called his photographs "...the best we have seen...extremely faithful and good, and of different sizes to suit all purses and purchasers...Mr. Anderson is the most extensive producer of photographs in Rome." Anderson exhibited his work widely throughout the 1860s.
