I have a collection of portfolios with photographs by J.F. Langhans. Each portfolio containsa a group of photographs mounted, with both type and hand written notes, embossed with National Art Library, mostly ecclesiastical garments. I received confirmation from V&A Museum that they were once part of their collection. They still have a portfolio of the Iron Work as part of Industrial Arts. A curator from V&A suggested I reach out to this group and tap into the great knowledge coming from the group. I have also spoken to the langhans.cz organization, but they had little information on these.
Any information about J.F. Langhans or the other industrial art works that were covered in the commissioned work of King Edward VII, would be greatly appreciated.
