Subject 51. Male costumes, traditional costumes Senja (Troms). Portrait of same leather clothing standing in photography studio with painted nature background. He keeps cane in his right hand. Hand colored. From the series "Norwegian Nationaldragter" (nr.51), photographed by photographer Marcus Selmer (1819-1900), Bergen. Subject title 51. Fin from Senjen in Finnmark. (Jfr.- Selmer direct., As well as text under image) History The photographs have to face protocol serial. NF.09401 with character as well (AZ), this image has the letter V. Index of Marcus Selmer (1819-1900) folk costume series, ref. his catalog published in 1872 (see References). Contains 129 no. (This paragraph. 51) card size, where several designs are also available in larger formats. Most should be done about 1862-1866, preferably in the studio in Bergen. Same design of costume / model was fitted over neutral background for various drawing interiors / exteriors with other processed detail (some photographed exteriors). They will exist in the same directory no. in Selmer (with us introduced at various NF-No.). The suits were spreckled, without particular regard to the correct colors. Selmer photographs are often equipped with stamp or label that can contribute to dating, but rarely on the year. Besides, later manipulations of older designs do dating uncertain. This photo label used from 1867 to 1873 (?), But another copy of the subject's label from 1862 to 1866. Purchased 1971 Skougaard auction no.4, cat. 911, price kr.30. Original Copy moved from index cards to standby archive.
