This a fine example of a late-career Eickemeyer studio portrait showing a woman in profile posing against a painted landscape backdrop with a column on the far right side of image.


Possibly a carbon print exhibiting a textured pattern on the print surface, the subject matter of this sepia portrait bears a passing resemblance (unauthenticated) to a later known portrait of the photographer’s second wife Florence Brevoort, whom he married in 1918.  (d. 1940)

print notes recto: primary mount: signed by Eickemeyer: RE Jr. 17 with his stylized monogram in red ink at lower right corner within impressed border.


provenance: purchased 2015 from seller who acquired it from sale of effects at senior development in Whiting, New Jersey.
