FASHIONABLY ATTIRED BLACK WOMAN & PRECOCIOUS WHITE GIRL TINTYPE
This is an odd pairing because there is no interaction between them, and yet we know there must be a profound one. The girl is at an age where she wants to hold her own. While the lady’s body language suggests 'resigned,' she’s fashionably attired and seated in the chair. Both faces are remarkable, but the lady’s is extra special, as it's in the light.
SIZE. Approximately 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches.
CONDITION. Slight bends. Surface wear.
APPEARANCE. Interesting composition. Both subjects are clear. Remarkable lighting on woman’s face. Great tonal range.
