“The Image Boy” (LB No 49 CL No 86) by Abraham Le Blond (1819-94). This particular image, out of all the 32, is one of the hardest to find in unfaded condition. Whether this had anything to do with it being the first of the ovals I am unsure. Of course the image boy was the portrayer of the famous people of the day, as without him no one would know what they looked like. Adapted from James Collinson’s painting of 1849. Plenty of detail in this picture, with the Le Blond signature left of centre. This is a magnificent copy.
