AN ARTIST AND HER ART IN CASTILE, NEW YORK

This Cabinet Card is a bit unusual in that it is an image of a woman posing next to framed art. The pose  raises some interesting questions. Is the woman an artist proudly displaying her artistic creation? Is the art in this photograph just a prop that the photographer likes to use in his studio work? The questions are unanswerable today but perhaps other images from this photographer will be found that also include art as part of his portraits. Such a finding would indicate that the art is simply a studio prop. The photographer is George L. Washburn of Castile, New York.
