Footnotes

  • A successful painter, journalist, and art dealer in Scotland until attracted by photography, Robert MacPherson moved to Rome in 1840 for health reasons and there became a commercial photographer, opening a shop from which he sold prints. However, MacPherson had high aspirations for his photographs, listing himself as "Artist Photographer" in a studio guide of 1858. For a time he enjoyed commercial success with the sale of these large-format, romantic views of Rome's ancient heritage.
