Peace
1861-1947, British

This is a very rare original photograph by British photographer Alexander Keighley, titled "Peace." The sight size of this photo is 22 3/4 x 15 inches; it was created in 1904 as the Royal Commission for the St. Louis Exhibition, and won the grand prize for photography in that event. It comes in the original art deco oak frame with the original label from the St. Louis Exhibition, as well as the customs label from 1904 on the back. Keighley was a founding member of "The Linked Ring," a leading group of the British "Pictorialist" movement. These photographers were dedicated to making the relatively new medium of photography into a fine art form, using a number of techniques to create soft, painterly, atmospheric photos. This image is one of Keighley's most recognizable, due to the considerable fame that it received at the St Louis Exhibition.
