VITTORIO SELLA

HIMALAYAS SINOLCHUM, 1899

Starting bid: $2,000

AMAZING LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY from K2 to the Matterhorn by Vittorio Sella. Before Ansel Adams became the leading outdoor photographer in the world and the face of the Sierra Club, Vittorio Sella (1859-1943) was the leading landscape photographer in the world and the face of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Based in Boston, the Appalachian Mountain Club was founded in 1876 and is Americas oldest non-profit conservation and recreation organization. Through their co-founder, Charles Fay, and his association with the Italian Alpine Club, they became acquainted with Vittorio Sella’s family and his photography.

K2 Western wall and camp 1909

Starting bid: $2,500

Vittorio Sella created the greatest exhibition of his early career, for the February 1893 Geographical Exhibition of Turin, where his prints won the Grand Gold Medal and Diploma of Honour. In 1893 the Appalachian Mountain Club acquired Sella’s prize winning 500 print exhibition. Over the next 20 years the AMC received Sella exhibition prints of his series in Alaska, two expeditions to the Himalayas and one to the Rwenzori in Africa. These vintage exhibition prints are the prints offered in this auction


This auction contains 550 original exhibition prints; highlights include over 40 spectacular multi-plate panorama views and rare gelatin silver and collodion views of K2, Kangchenjunga and the Himalayas--in 297 lots. The collection is being sold by the Appalachian Mountain Club to directly benefit the Appalachian Mountain Club Trails Protection Fund, Conservation Research and Climate Action, and the Modernization and Preservation of the AMC Library and Archives.

HIMALAYAS KARAKORAM

Broad Peak at Sunset 1909

Starting bid: $1,500

Vittorio Sella (1859-1943) began serious mountain climbing and photography when he was a teenager mastering the wet plate technique and making panoramas by 1880. By 1879 he began to use dry plates and in 1880 began a series of winter views in the Alps. Every holiday, summer and winter, Sella was in the nearby mountains, often carrying an old photographic apparatus that had belonged to his father. Vittorio Sella’s father had written the first article on photography in Italian and his uncle was a founder of the Italian Mountain Club. Sella’s family was from Biella, in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy and had been textile manufacturers and businessmen for a few centuries before Sella was born.


As Yosemite was the playground for Ansel Adams, the Alps were Sella’s playground, with the difference that Sella became one of the leading mountain climbers of his generation. So while Ansel stuck to the lowlands Sella soared to the tops of the tallest mountains in the world, giving him a photographic perspective that was thoroughly modern and abstract. When Ansel was still in knickers Sella, who was familiar with all the writing about art photography from P.H. Emerson to Stieglitz, had mastered all the modern photography methods that Ansel would write about for most of his lifetime.

By the time Sella was 20 he had become an accomplished wet plate collodion photographer and had begun multi-plate making panoramic views--these being some of the most significant photographs made in the History of Photography in the late 19th and early 20th Century.

VITTORIO SELLA

K2 AT SUNRISE 1909

Starting bid: $1,500

During his lifetime Vittorio Sella was celebrated for the photographs he exhibited from his daring expeditions. According to one reviewer, his annual exhibition of mountain photographs at the Alpine Club in London was "inconveniently crowded." Sella sold his prints to people from Italy, France, Germany, and England, and was represented by a London dealer named Spooner. His photographs satisfied a growing public hunger to know more about distant places on the earth that few would ever see first-hand, while providing a satisfying blend of artistic, scientific, intellectual, and even spiritual elements. Sella's primary goal was to provide the empirical evidence of what he and his party had seen on their expeditions, and to convey reality as it was perceived by the human eye. His approach was governed by rigorous technical and aesthetic standards that he called "la realta severe" - severe reality.  

Lot 2186

VITTORIO SELLA

Ice Pyramids 1909

Starting bid: $1,500

His hard-edged sheer black and white modernist gelatin silver prints made of the Karakoram region of the Himalayas in 1909, in terms of modern landscape, were only equaled by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams in the late 1920-1940s. As with all great photographers the art is in the piece of paper and Sella’s photographic technic and papers were unsurpassed, rich and modern, unlike American papers that tended to be dull and light.

K2 and the Karakoram 1909


In 1909, as Sella was approaching his fiftieth birthday, he and his long-time climbing friend the Duke of the Abruzzi, Luigi Amedeo di Savoia, embarked on their most ambitious journey yet, to climb K2 in the Western Himalaya Karakoram range, and to satisfy the Duke's primary intention to set a new high-altitude climbing record. In Tibetan, the name Karakoram means "black gravel," and to reach it meant crossing the vast mountainous region between Kashmir and Chinese Turkestan, a complex system of ranges, immense tablelands, intricate valleys, and mighty rivers.  (The Duke's goal was to see how high a man could climb and he wanted Sella to chronicle his increasingly bold explorations for future generations.) On K2, the second highest peak in the world, they reached 19,685 feet on the Southeast Ridge, now known as the Abruzzi Ridge. They were only the second team to attempt climbing K2 and although they were unsuccessful the Duke set a world record by climbing to 24,600 feet on Chogolisa (Bride Peak). Sella was the first person to photograph the region's mountain ranges, glaciers, and tropical forests. From Darjeeling they trekked through Kashmir, Dras River Valley, the Indus Valley, Parkutta, the Pumah River and then concentrated on the Baltoro Glacier and K2 area. Subjects included: Mt. Pajui, Mashurbrum, Gasherbrum I - IV, Staircase Peak, Bride Peak, Godwin-Austin Glacier, Mitre Peak, and Mustagh Tower.

In September and October 1899 he joined legendary climber Douglas Freshfield on a tour to finish mapping the Himalayan Kangchenjunga area, third highest peak in the world in the area of India Sikkim, Nepal, Bhuton, Tibet and China. Inclement weather prevented any serious high ascents but Sella found much to photograph including wonderful fauna, Hortensias, Delphiniums, Getians, Leontopodium alpinium, and Rhodendrons, Forests in Zemu Valley,Tumlong, Lachen, Srinagar, Siniolchu,Lungma Valley, Johnsong La and Peak, Jongri, Pandim, Guicha La, Praig Chu, Kabru, and Darjeeling.

Sella became famous among climbing fraternities as far away as London for his 1882 winter crossing of the Matterhorn when he ascended on one side and descended another. The speed of his campaigns was astonishing. In 1887 between July 29 and August 11 he climbed the Weisshorn twice, the Mettelhorn, Mittelgabelhorn, Alphubel, Rimpfischhorn, Dent Blanche, and the Dufourspitze of Monte Rosa.

Sella photographed and climbed extensively in the European Union Alps, Italy, France and Switzerland.

In 1893 Elizabeth Denio, an AMC member, wrote about this in a Club Report: "The notable events of the year in the Department of Art have been the exhibition of the Sella Collection of Alpine and Caucasian photographs, and the purchase of the same by subscription for the Club. Without doubt this collection, numbering some five hundred subjects, is one of the largest and finest ever seen in America. They differ from most mountain photographs in being largely taken from extremely high points, and in this, as in their superb technique, testify to Mr. Sella's skill both as a mountaineer and as a photographer. Several form panoramas: others are details of the upper portions of high mountains; and all combine to present a marvelous world of snow and ice, of crag and crevasse, of regions lonely, vast, and most fascinating. Old travelers quite familiar with the Alps thrill again as they see these pictures, and recall experiences in the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, or Mont Rosa; all behold a hitherto unknown world of sublimity and beauty in the Caucasian mountains, while delighting in the infinite gradations of color, the magnificent cloud effects, the marvels of rock-structure in these perfect reproductions of Nature."

The AMC exhibited Sella’s 1893 prints in nearly 100 venues in New England and across America in the 1890s and early 1900s. Many of the prints in the auction were banged up and scratched (and are offered here at bargain prices) as the prints traveled. The AMC Sella committee had a conversation similar to many museums today: is it better to show the work and risk damage to the prints so people can appreciate and learn about it or is it better to keep it stored so only the few researchers can view the prints? The AMC struck a middle ground, storing some prints and continuing to monitor damage to prints as they were exhibited. Mounts were replaced under the instructions of Sella as they were often damaged. The work from Alaska, the Himalayas and Africa were rarely exhibited and are in wonderful condition.


Rwenzori Africa 1906 Headwaters of the Nile



In 1901 Henry Stanley spoke before the Royal Geographical Society of London and uttered a wish that some future daring explorer would climb these lofty mountains. Inspired by this, the Duke of the Abruzzi led an expedition to climb the unclimbed mounts of the Rwenzori, the headwaters of the Nile, straddling the border of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Sella joined this group to help with photography and telemapping. Subjects photographed include the flora and fauna, the valleys and glaciers. Giant Lobelia growing in the Heath forests were part of Sella’s wider view of the environment as were the local inhabitants. The Mobuku River, the Bujuku Valley, lead to the higher mountains Mt. Stanley, Mt. Baker, Mt. Savoia, Alexandra Peak, Margherita Peak, King Edward Peak, Mt. Speke, Johnson Peak, Victor Emmanuel II Peak are seen in the Sella photographs at this auction. The glaciers Sella photographed have all melted and Sella’s photographs have been used in glacial studies and climate change since the 1950s.
