Glass plate negative depicting a man holding up two paintings for the purpose of photography. The paintings are a portrait of Prince Albert and a portrait of Queen Victoria by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (RCINs 402327 and 402326).

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative do not seem to exist in the Collection.
