André Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri 
Disdéri 
1860 
  
Carte de visite 
Paul Frecker 
 
LL/13480 
  
A caricature of Disdéri by Van den Acker, a version of which appeared in the Journal amusant on 11 August 1860. Ridiculed by some for his prominent beard, his bald head and the exotic tunic he donned when operating, the flip side of his showmanship was a reputation among his critics as an egotist and a dandified poseur.
 
The caption, Ne Bougeons plus !!!, a phrase coined by Disdéri, may be translated as "Hold it !!!"
