Woman in studio with headtie and dutch wax Victorian-style dress

Photographer Alex Agbaglo Acolatse Togolese

Not on view

Original glass negative. It represents a woman whose garment is made from a single patterned fabric with frilled sleeves and a delicately collared neck. It is the same woman as that featured in 2015.499.21.1 and .2, who has been identified as the wife of the photographer. She stands in an indoor studio setting, with her left arm resting on a plush, tasseled stand. Behind her, the painted backdrop features a pulled back curtain on the upper left side. To her immediate right is a short table that supports a white pot filled with stems of foliage.
