Sella created the greatest exhibition of his career, the February 1893 Geographical Exhibition of Turin, where his prints won the Grand Gold Medal and Diploma of Honour. The exhibition was organized around his photo-essays of geographic sub-regions. The first eleven sections featured topographic views of the Alps, the twelfth section was on Mt. Etna, and the thirteenth and fourteenth sections contained ethnographic and topographic views of the Caucasus. From Turin the exhibition traveled to Boston where it was exhibited and purchased by the Appalachian Mountain club. After being exhibited at the AMC and the Boston Arts Club in 1893, the prints traveled to New England and for the next 12 years circulated in various forms throughout the United States. In 1897, Sella, on his way to Alaska, saw an exhibition of his prints in Portland hosted by the Mazamas Club. After 1910 the prints were exhibited only sporadically. This print is from the original Turin exhibition that was shown in Boston in 1893.
