Psyche

Frederick Hollyer (1838-1933)

Photograph, possibly the platinum process

7 ½ x 5 inches

From the Psyche and Cupid triptych by Harry Bates, A.R.A

According to the extensive Wikipedia article, Hollyer appears to have made a living photographing paintings and sculpture from the 1870s on. In M.H. Spielmann, British Sculpture and Sculptors of To-Day (1901) he has a two-page advertisement at the very back of the book showing not only the Story of Psyche but a number of other items by Bates.
