Albert and Victoria’s collection of glass plate negatives show photographers’ working methods


Leopold I, King of the Belgians (1790-1865)


RCIN 2082489

Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Leopold I, King of the Belgians standing and facing towards the camera. He turns his head to look at the right. He wears a long overcoat and rests his left hand on an ornamental plinth.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2907574.
