13 3/8 x 10 5/8- inch gelatin silver print, hand colored, on the original decorative 22 x 13 3/4- inch double mat, signed and dated on the print and again on the mount beneath the print. This is in the rotunda of the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts at the time of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, printed and colored a year or so later. A masterpiece of evocative pictorialist photography, using the architectural features as a basis for something mysterious, brought out by the coloring (each print colored by hand) and lighting. This is a great example of this print.

DeMille’s “massive biblical production.” The scene shows Victor Varconi and Majal Coleman as Pilate and his wife. Has Mortensen’s stamp on the verso. It is interesting as an example of his studio work before the wild pictorialist photographs he is known for. The melodramatic faces of the scene anticipate some aspects of his later work.
