Glass plate negative of a painting of a full length portrait of Prince Albert (1819-61) standing, leaning against a fireplace.He wears highland dress and hold his hands together infrom of his stomach. His legs are crossed.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative exist in the Collection (e.g. RCINs 2418596 and 2418595).
