Doré by Nadar (1854)

The photograph titled “Doré” is an artwork created by the artist Nadar in 1854. It is a portrait that captures a man with an intense gaze, looking slightly to the side. The man has a full beard and mustache, which were common in the mid-nineteenth century style of grooming. His hair is neck-length and parted on the side. He is wearing a dark, high-collared cloak or coat, and the background is nondescript, though somewhat mottled or textured, which helps to concentrate the focus on the subject’s expression and features. The lighting of the photograph accentuates the contours of the man’s face and the texture of his coat.
