Glass plate negative of a painting of Queen Victoria  (1819-1901) by Franz Winterhalter, 1843 (RCIN 406010). Head and shoulders portrait, her head is turned half to the left, shown leaning back against a cushion, her loose hair flows over her shoulder. Oval format.

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 2800631.
