12201070287?profile=originalI am seeking information about this albumen portrait. I believe this is Richard Chenevix Trench 1836-1861, one of the many children of Richard Chenevix Trench, Irish poet and Anglican Archbishop. The son tragically died at age 25. My main interest is the photographer. Does any member recognize a style or size that may lead to identify the photographer? The image is 19.5 x 14.5 cm. "Requisat in Pace" may have been added later?

Of special interest is the chair, I find it very Lewis Carroll-y. Has anyone done a study of British photographer's leather chairs? Seems like a field for future inquiry.


Many Thanks in advance,

David McGreevy
