In researching my composite dag (see my avatar) I came across this daguerreotype of Edwin Forrest that was once owned by the Daguerreotypist James Landy. Landy's Wife donated the daguerreotype to the Cincinnati Art Museum at the end of the 19th century. Note the corner motif on the Daguerreotype of Edwin Forrest at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The only place I could find this "EXACT" Corner Motif was used on Waterworks Panoramic Daguerreotypes by Porter and also another one by Fontayne and Porter. They used the Motif at the bottoms of the Columns on the 2 different mentioned multi daguerreotype plate panoramics. Below is a close up of the Gold Miner in my composite dag showing the same corner Motifs as in the Edwin Forrest Daguerreotype at Cincinnati Art Musuem. Also part of my composite dag is a man in the lower right corner with arms crossed in Gothic Chair. I have found 5 examples of this same studio with same lighting and Gothic Chair, but no credits to who the photographer was. 2 of which was owned by antique photography dealers that I contacted without a response. I believe the unattributed Edwin Forrest Daguerreotype currently at Cincinnati Art Museum was done by Fontayne & Porter or one or the other.
