About This Image

Image is of a little boy, with thumb tucked in belt and wearing checkered pants typical of the era, sitting in a straight back chair. Close inspection of his expression reveals he may have just recovered from a crying jag as he finally submits to the camera's demands. Handwritten in French in beautiful calligraphy on verso "Juillet 1850." Provenance: Christie's London, May 1999.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
