102 : Style And Some Pen Strokes


This is a late nineteenth century Carte de Visite (CdV) from the studio of Rudolph Tiffee of Cleve , a German town a few miles from the German-Dutch border.In many ways it is fairly typical of the studio portraits of the time, although the subject has a more stylish sense of dress than many of his British equivalents of the time.
