The maker of this early image is unknown. Visual cues within the image, including the photographer’s use of a hanging backdrop, are laden with suggestion. A comparison with known plates by pioneering American artists Robert Cornelius and Samuel F. B. Morse, who had met Daguerre in Paris in 1839, are apt but may not warrant anything more than hopeful attribution.
