Portrait of a Girl, Eduard Isaac Asser, c. 1854 - c. 1855

salted paper print, h 125mm × w 94mm. More details

Asser was one of the earliest practitioners of photography in the Netherlands. Two hundred of his photographs have been preserved, among them the earliest images of Amsterdam. This album contains still lifes and splendid portrait studies of Asser’s wife, children, and sons-in-law that were taken between 1853 and 1858. In the portrait of this unknown girl with folded arms resting on her lap, he proves himself a master of composition and lighting.
