Photographer: Jeremiah Gurney (1812-1895). Portrait of an elegantly dressed gentleman. Circa 1845. Daguerreotype (quarter-plate), with original metal surround with photographer's blindstamp in lower edge, taped behind glass and in leather case.
Jeremiah Gurney opened a daguerreotype studio/gallery in New York in 1840 and regularly exhibited his work at local fairs. In 1851, his work was featured at the international exhibition at the Crystal Palace in London. Gurney's Daguerrian Gallery was a large success and it featured galleries with portraits of "Distinguished Persons of the Age" who had been photographed at the studio. By 1853, after the Crystal Palace exhibition he began using paper processes almost exclusively. – Unopened, minimal oxidation in edges, a few spots on glass, otherwise a strong image in very good condition.
