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 2083768

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 three-quarters to the left and gazes ahead, away from 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. Prints from this negative do not semm to exist in the Collection, however a variant from the same sitting is represented by RCIN 2906573.
