Born in Germany in 1878, Hoppé was of English citizenship and actively worked from 1910 - 1945. He was the prototypical celebrity photographer, photographing the most famous of the time, and by 1913 his photographic operations occupied the 33-room Kensington House of the late Sir John Everett Millais. His work was widely exhibited in his lifetime and is held in collections at the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London amongst others. His work fell into obscurity after his retirement in 1945, locked into archives at the Mansell Collection London's oldest picture library known only to a few photography scholars, curators and a handful of collectors. This is the first opportunity to view and purchase these unique vintage London prints by Hoppé.
