PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN : LOTS OF LACE : KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE : PHOTO BY J. KNAFFL

This vintage photograph features a portrait of a pretty young woman. She is wearing a high collared dress with a great deal of detailed lace. The woman was photographed by the Knaffl & Brother studio, located in Knoxville, Tennessee. She is well posed and the photographer did an excellent job producing this portrait. The high quality of this photograph should come as no surprise.  Joseph Knaffl (1861-1938) was an esteemed American art and portrait photographer. He was active in Knoxville during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. One of his portraits is very well known. It has been printed thousands of times and, according to Wikepedia, it is stilll utilized in Hallmark Christmas cards. The 1899 portrait is known as the “Knaffl Madonna”. Knaffl’s early portraits were influenced by classical art and often had a religious theme. After joining with his protege, James Brakebill, he transitioned into more character studies. In the mid 1880’s he did a series of photographs mocking negative racial stereotypes. Many of Knaffl’s portraits appeared in national magazines. His images also won many awards at National competitions. Knaffl owned two studios in Knoxville. Knaffl and Brother was established in 1884, while Knaffl and Brakebill began operations in 1909. He operated them simultaneously. Knaffl was born in Tennessee. His father was an Austrian born physician who was the court physician to the emperor of Austria. After 1848 he moved to the United States and upon the advent of the civil war, he became a Union Army Surgeon. Joseph Knaffl was schooled in Knoxville and Nashville. He learned photography from his brother-in-law (T M Scheier). The 4 1/8″ x 6″ image has excellent clarity. It is in excellent (near mint) condition (see scans).
