Vignette portrait of a young man in Hungarian costume

Vignette portrait of a young man in Hungarian costume
Albumen print of cardboard, slightly oversized carte de visite (11 x 7,2 cm)
photographer unkown, Hungary or Transylvania, 1860s
entry number: cdv.2012.07

Portrait of an unidentified young man wearing the same type of archaizing Hungarian costume as Gallik Géza. The crack on the right side of the portrait is part of the photograph and not a flaw of the albumen paper. Together with the soft contrast of the photo, it suggests that this might be the copy of an earlier image. The atypical oversized cardboard might be useful in the eventual identification of the unknown author of the copy.
