Glass plate negatives

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

ROGER FENTON (1819-69)

Princess Victoria Gouramma of Coorg (1841-64)

Nov 1854

RCIN 2083766

Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Princess Victoria Gouramma of Coorg (1841-64), daughter of the ex-Rajah of Coorg. The Princess is seated with her feet positioned on a foot stool. She faces slightly towards the left and gazes towards the camera. She wears a dress with corset and crinoline.

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 2906573.
