Michael G. Jacob:
 
In this Italian trompe l’oeil of cartes-de-visite scattered on a pink tablecloth, there are two actual photographs, two copies of photographic views, two pencil sketches, ten blank cards, and one carte covering the legs of the man in the portrait on which is written: “Lugano, 12th April, 1864. And he wisely (politically in Italian) hid his legs. J. Saffi.”
