Unknown Lady in Nine Oval Views

Unknown Lady, by Albert Southworth and Josiah Johnson Hawes, ca 1845-61 (8 1/2 x 6 1/2 in). Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (not on view).

next episode: a viscount


  1. Interesting composition. I can't recall seeing other older photos arranged in this fashion.

  2. Me neither, it's very uncommon. Also, I like her hair, very mid 1850s.

  3. Yes, very interesting hairdo, but it's hard for me to look at her without the phrase "Help me Obi Wan Kanobi. You're my only hope," playing in my head.
