Image of Anonymous: baby with 'hidden mother', ca. 1907

So lovely!

The 'not so hidden' mother on the right looks with much love to the baby. Probably made outside as you can see in the upper right corner. The baby poses before a painted backdrop and on the tablecloth. The clips for holding the glass negative are visible too.
Probably there were also portraits made of the mother, as she wears very nice clothes.

A posed portrait with vernacular quality.

ca. 13 x 18 cm
silver gelatine print.

Dated in pencil '1907' on the verso.
