What are we framing this week!
A crayon portrait from 1896!
You may remember the photo we posted a while ago of twins. Our client brought in another crayon portrait of a young child. She wanted to frame the new photograph in a similar frame style to go in another room in her house.
Crayon portraits were made from about 1860 into the early 1900’s. A “soft” photographic image was printed to a matte paper, and the detail was provided by the photographic artist in charcoal or pastel.
