Additional Details

From a European Collector.

Plüschow was related to the Taormina photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden, who began taking photographs later but whose career eclipsed that of his cousin. Plüschow was charged with corruption of minors and spent time incarcerated; in 1910 he returned to Germany.
