About This Image
Note the second man, barely visible and perhaps the owner, in the background at the left.
With "Nadar jeune" stamp photo and negative number reversed out of photo, and a title in ink on the recto of the mount in German (Cow of the Race in Normandy). A very rich print. Commonly referred to as a varnished salt print, it is technically made by vernis-cuir, a process in which a paper is coated with layers of gelatin and tannin, giving it a thick high gloss like that of varnished leather. Tournachon often used the process and stamped these prints with his mark, "Nadar j[eu}ne."
