What it is:
Cabinet card measuring 4.25 x 6 inches.
What I know about it:
Nothing! Undated and unidentified. (The bottom portion, which would typically contain the name and location of the photographer, has been trimmed off.)
The outfit and the soft focus give it such an ethereal, angelic quality, while the face, though handsome, conveys a quality that is not the same as angelic innocence. And yet these two qualities are somehow not in conflict in this image. I find it quite a striking effect.
