Image of Bingham: Ernest Meissonier and his dog, ca. 1865

A carte de visite (CdV) of the famous French historic painter Ernest Meissonier (1815-1891) by Robert J. Bingham. His pose is rather casual. He hold hit top hat and cane in his right hand. The painter's dog lies just near him, also in a very casual way.

The albumen print is mounted on the original slightly trimmed mount.
CdV with address on the back, 58, rue de la Rochefoucauld, 58 [sic.].
Print in overal good condition. Slightly faded due to age. Original retouching visible.

Strong portrait.
ca. 1865
