Nicolaas Henneman 
Portrait of the painter William Henry Hunt (1790-1864) 
1840s (late) - 1850s (early) 
  
Calotype

Henneman was Talbot's protégé and had a calotype portrait studio in London from 1847 to 1855.
 
The photograph has a faint grid of pencil lines drawn over the head, betraying its use as a sketch, probably for a self-portrait.
