Description
Photo 1 appears to show a self-portrait of the so-called "Count" A. Tamborini, who became a portrait painter in Pasadena; in this portrait, he has painted himself as a younger man. The Count is dressed in a light color suit, wears a dark cap, and is holding a very large paint pallet in his left hand, and a paintbrush in his right. Several tubes of paint are scattered around his right foot, which is propped on top of a table.
