Caricature of a photographer in his studio

Pen and ink drawing on paper attributed to John Gilbert (artist, born 1817 died 1897)


Pen and ink caricature of a bearded photographer holding a watch, leaning forward while taking the daguerreotype of a client who is held firm in a special chair with a neck-brace and a worried expression. Behind, a fashionably dressed couple inspect an oval daguerreotype, the man using a magnifying glass. Other sketches of male heads and a male figure intersperse the figures of the caricature.
