This CDV portrait shows Georges Wattinne Desurmont. It is bnot datted, but as we know Georges was born in 1869 and he looks to be about 4 years old, we would guess the portrait was taken about 1872-73. He wears a dress with four strioes on the lower skirt. We can't describe it in detail because he wears a dress over it. We are not sure why mother idn't have Georges take off the coat, perhaps thre was a series of shots. His outfit is completed with white long stockings and high-top button shoes. Georges holds what looks like a fur-trimmed hat, but we are unsure how to describe it. H has short hair cut at about ear level. The portrait is useful because we are able to date it so closely. The studio was Maujean in Paris.
