The little boy in the clouds

Portrait of young boy by GILBERT. Cabinet card. Private Collection.

1890s-1900s portrait of little boy by GILBERT. Cabinet card. Private Collection.

The boy looks like he’s standing in a fog or clouds, a very beautiful Edwardian child with a high collar on and a light colored silk cravat with white fleur de lis. He’s looking off to the side, all the while appearing quite focused.

There’s some surreal quality to this cabinet card and it is aging well, as if getting patina.

Photographer: GILBERT. The back is blank. The front bottom was clipped to fit in an album. As a result the address is half missing. 228 (or 229) Fifth Ave. PTTS (or PIIS)
