Grandmaster Sculptor And Artist
This photographic image was made in 1862, when he was 22 years of age. The photographer was Charles Aubry. The B&W image was from a glass negative plate, which was badly worn and damaged. This photo image is from the very early birth pangs of photography. The young, soon to be master, sits in his studio frock with a faint image of scaffolding in the background. After much work on the B&W image, I attempted to add color to the ancient photo.
