A pensive chiaroscuro portrait of a boy from the 1910’s most likely. I don’t remember seeing many profile pictures of men from the time.

Daydreaming in Chiaroscuro

An artistic portrait of a teen with a half smile. He’s holding a large book, looking up and off to the side as if daydreaming. The background reminds me of a church or school hall.

A candid of a curly haired boy violinist in pajamas sitting in contre-jour by a tall and narrow window.

There’s some light reflection to the bottom, some fog and a ghost-like anomaly…maybe cigarette smoke…maybe not.
