The Dumitrescu family, by R. Rigopulo (Brăila): verso

albumen print on cardboard, carte de visite
R. Rigopulo (Brăila), 1879

A rather bizarre couple from the Danubian port of Brăila, almost descended from one of Ion Luca Caragiale`s sketches.

Handwritten note on the verso: ”M. Dumitrescu Evantia Dumitrescu / Souvenir / Anul 1879 August 29”.

The inscription ”Artis Amica Nostrae” and a similar design on the verso (featuring a Muse holding a photographic camera) were also used by Nestor Heck in Iași in the mid-1870s (e.g. 1 - 2), though not combined as on Rigopulo`s cartes de visite.
