This interior pictorialist study of a woman reading a book backlit by a window may have been taken by an English photographer, as it was purchased for this archive from a dealer based in Warwickshire, England. (Fall, 2012)


Signed on the mount in graphite, the signature of the photographer is fairly indecipherable, but may be Huggins, Higgins or a variation.  What is believed to be the date, possibly 1907 or 1917 is included below the signature.


Tissue platinum or Kallitype  is titled on border recto corner in graphite, and is believed to be:  Agnes
