The Thinker in his yard

CDV. Private Collection.

Circa 1880-1900. Private Collection.

A wonderfully detailed CDV of a gentleman posing in a yard in front of a window. A gypsy table is by his side with a flower vase and a few books and notebooks on top. Let’s not forget the white lace curtains behind him, and the crocheted doily table topper! The composition was well thought out and comes out nice.

And this man has a very classically intellectual pose, his hand resting on the temple. I wonder what he was…a writer, a professor?

Detail after the cut.

I’m kind of stumped narrowing down the date of this photo but it’s a gorgeous one.
