Description
CHILD WITH TILTED HEAD BY SOUTHWORTH AND HAWES. 1/6 plate daguerreotype, one of only four 1/6 plates of unidentified children given a full page in Young America. [Catalog 1537, p. 192.] This is posed with great sensitivity. Every curve in the image is carefully arranged within the oval mat. The child's expression is difficult to "read", shifting every time I look at it—serious but not solemn. The hair is a main feature, tinted a subtle copper tone. The curve of the similarly tinted shirt is a reverse of the hair line. In a fine black pushbutton case.
Condition
Tiny wispy mat abrasions at very top and left edges hardly detract from the perfection. [4-]
