Glass plate negative a painting of Maharajah Duleep Singh (1838-93) created by Franz Xaver Winterhalter in 1854 (RCIN 403843). The sitter is depicted full length, standing, facing slightly towards the left and looking towards the viewer. He is wearing a turban and a jewel framed miniature of Queen Victoria.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative, albeit half length, exists in the Collection, RCIN 2917837.
