Large prints by Marconi, an Italian who worked in France, are somewhat scarce. Numbered '604' in negative. See: "Photographies" (May, 1985) pp.110-112 for article on Marconi; Seguin, Naef, Marbot, et. al., After Daguerre: Masterworks of French Photography, p.37, fig.13, and pl.92-94 for later work; also Das Aktfoto, pp.70-71 and 94 for more information and images. Marconi reportedly took over Auguste Belloc's studio and negatives. He moved to Brussels, where this image was possibly made.
