This is a portrait without much information - actually without any information, but where the personality of the sitter shines through very clearly. I do not know who this woman is, I do not know the name of the photographer nor do I know where this photo was taken. There is absolutely nothing printed or written on it. But perhaps I lied a bit when I said there is no information. You can deduce some. I bought it on an online auction in Sweden, so it is reasonable to assume this woman to be Swedish (most old portraits I own has been bought in country of origin). The date is likely early to mid 1860s - based on both her fashion, and the simplicity of the card itself which by the end of the decade were getting much more ornate. The woman herself must have been well off - by the end of the 19th century and in the early 20th going to the photographer were something most people did, perhaps not often and most likely as something quite special, but they did it. And every little town had at least one photo studio (and many more than that), But this is much earlier when it would have been much more expensive and much less common. But all the same, look at her hand. That is the hand of someone who is using them for work - tanned and coarse. No wedding ring though, so probably not married. The dress itself is in tune with the fashion of the time, but strict and with no extra frills. At the same time she is wearing jewelery - both a brooch and a couple of necklaces. If I were to guess, I would say she is the daughter of a well-to-do but still hard-working farmer.
