Re: is this a photo?

Hello. Definitely is a "hybrid", a paintwork and also a photo. I´m restoring a lot of these all time. The restoration must be done as to preserve its paintwork look and not as a picture. Some 50-60 years ago, a good number of "photographers" came from Spain here, in Venezuela, took the shots, then went back to Spain, someone was making the paintwork and after that they returned to Venezuela with this hybrid. All process was about 4-6 months.
In fact, next week I have one waiting to be painted:

Last week had another:

I have done a few of these too, but was unsure also.
Love both photos but the girl is cuter.
Thanks!

very interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing the info. it seems there is no end to how creative people have been through the years in regards to photographs and how they work with them based on the technology, tools and process they had at the time. I'd have remained unaware of these things if not for you knowledgeable folks on the forum

Re: is this a photo?

This type of image was a very popular restoration for me last year. All at 16x12 inches and all on board, most likely made from pulp and hand screened into card, as you can see the layers of fibres built up in the process. This type of photo seems to have had the light sensitive emulsion painted onto the board and then exposed to light. An example is here board based photos. I would suggest that such large sizes of photographic paper could not be made so the photographer simply grabbed a stable matt cardboard base and painted on the chemicals. The resulting image is a very soft focused photo without any hard defined edges, probably down to slow exposures not so well made optics as we have today. It was then enhanced with only available enhancement methods, black ink and pencils or even charcoal.
