Robert Cornelius by perselus
Robert Cornelius

Robert Cornelius’ first selfie ever. After reading about this amazing guy, and seeing his photograph, I had the idea for this painting. The photo that inspired the painting is this one: media.tumblr.com/46bf343019af0….

And here’s his story:

In October of 1839, Robert Cornelius set up his camera at the back of his father's shop in Philadelphia, removed the lens cap, ran into the frame and stood still for five minutes before running back and replacing the lens cap. He had created what is thought to be the first self-portrait photograph. The back of the photo reads, "The first light picture ever taken." He was a bit of a chemist, a lamp manufacturer, and a pioneer of photography. Also, a very handsome dude!

Hi, this might be a strange question, but are you the same Patricia who drew a lot of Snarry art a few years back? I can't see them in your gallery, but the signature looks the same :)

Yes, I did paint a lot of Snarry art, I was commissioned a lot to do those, but Deviantart had a problem with them, I got some reported and taken down, and I stopped posting them here. I will have a place for them on my site, but it's still under construction. So, I'll let everyone know when it's there. ;)
