Princess Marie Czartoryska
Albumen Print, Sheet of uncut carte-de-visite

Purchased with the Kenneth C. and Louise McKeon Deemer ’33 Fund

In this uncut sheet of carte-de-visite portraits, Princess Marie Czartoryska wears traditional Polish dress. 

Colleen Mangan ’13 reads that choice as reflecting her family’s political belief that Polish nobility and the peasant class had a shared goal in returning Poland to the hands of its own citizens.
