An unidentified dancer
Eugène Feyen of Paris
A carte-de-visite portrait of an unidentified dancer posed suggestively with her skirts raised and one foot on a chair. One can easily imagine this sort of portrait being passed around after dinner by the gentlemen of the Jockey Club.
Photographed by Eugène Feyen of Paris.
Condition: the print presents a few small imperfections but is otherwise in fine condition, with very good tonal range. The mount presents some stains and discolouration recto in one margin and verso at two edges but is otherwise crisp and clean, with sharp corners.
Dimensions: the dimensions of a standard carte-de-visite are approximately 4.1" by 2.5" (10.5 cm by 6.3 cm).
