Portrait of a lady 
1850s-1860s 
  
Salt paper print, painted 
Private collection of Laurie Minor 
 
LL/31479 
  
The portrait is in a case by Antoine Claudet (1797-1867) although who created the photograph and painted it is not certain. When the mat is removed one can see that the lady's sleeves were not painted. Mark Osterman (George Eastman House) said that "it is a very beautifully painted example of a salted paper print made from the collodion glass negative. The colored stippling effect resembles the technique used in ivory miniature painting, and is rarely found on a salted paper print. The negative was made in the studio, printed on paper, then pasted on cardboard." Thanks to Anna Michas (George Eastman House), Laurie Minor and Mark Osterman for their assistance with this image.
