Unknown Young Women in a Boat about 1863
  • Scottish Art
As the market for card portraits became increasingly saturated, photographers introduced extravagant gimmicks to attract clients. The Scots-Canadian photographer, William Notman, developed types of artificial snow for use in his studio in Montreal. Others fabricated even more extravagant studio interiors using props which suggested a lifestyle of leisure and luxury. Here we are treated to Highland scenery with a real boat in its midst.
