Portrait of a Young Woman, Albertus Pieterse, 1840 - 1860

Portrait of a Young Woman, Albertus Pieterse, 1840 - 1860

copper (metal), h 89mm × w 73mm More details

It is uncertain when Pieterse opened a daguerreotype studio in his mirror and frame factory on the Nieuwendijk in Amsterdam. We do know that during the early years of photography – when Pieterse was active as a photographer – photographs could be made only in spring and summer when there was enough daylight. This portrait of a young woman is of exceptionally high quality and embellished with gold paint.
