At a quick glance, you might think this sixth plate daguerreotype was made from life. But, you would be incorrect. It is a cunning copy of a painting, painted and then copied exactly in the style of portrait dags of the day. The older man slightly sneers at the painter, and at us, and why shouldn’t he – someone like him doesn’t have time for the likes of us! The image is resealed and comes in a nice case. The dag is in fine condition.
