Brahms, Johannes. Johannes Brahms in de Biblioteek Viktor von Miller zu Aicholz 1894. (Johannes Brahms in the Viktor von Miller Library in Aicholz 1894.) Photograph, platinum print, 9 7/8 in x 8 7/8 in. Pencil annotation “14420” on the verso. Viktor von Miller zu Aicholz 1845-1910 was an Austrian industrialist who trained as a chemist and later managed his father’s chemical factory. He was also a talented pianist and patron of Johannes Brahms. This photograph of Brahms – muddy shoes and all — was taken in the von Miller zu Aicholz library. There are two slight blemishes, which appear to have happened during development of the image. Otherwise, this is a rare large full-length informal portrait of Brahms reading. The inscription in the lower right-hand corner is a presentation inscription between a Prof. Rudy von Schmidt and his “Dearest Lil.” The photographer is unidentified.
