Wild Hair by Fixon
Quarter plate daguerreotype of a gent with wildly tossed hair, 1850s, by Pierre Fixon, Paris. Applied tinting to skin tones. Housed in original passe-partout mount, FIXON's studio imprint on plate. ( Inventory# hb45 )
The three-dimensionality of Fixon's plate gives added effect to his cheerful personality and a wildly tossed mane of hair.
