Full body X-Ray of Woman, head in profile, diamond wedding band on left hand, metal rod through each heel of shoe, probably made as an historical recreation of an early 20th Century X-Ray.Arthur W. Fuchs, American, ca. 1895 - 1962

Full body X-ray. There are small holes punched along all sides which were probably used to secure the image in a frame for display. A film label with the image reads: Medical Division / Eastman Kodak Company / Rochester New YorkIn the typical X-Ray practices of the early 20th Century, such as was practiced by Wolfram Fuchs, father of the maker of these X-Ray historical recreations, the patient remained clothed and did not remove jewelry or hairpins. After ca. 1905, it was usual for the patient to substitute a chemise or hospital gown. This effort by Arthur Fuchs seems to be an attempts at recreating an earlier look, but were probably not made with the technology and tubes of the earlier times.

Léon Vidal, French, 1833 - 1906




Leon Vidal’s exact process remains an elusive one. Here is a possible formula, based on some inspection by Paul Thirkell and Stephen Hoskins from the Center for Fine Print Research, Bristol U.K. in 2003:First, a coating of lithographic varnish is layed down, followed by dusting with gold powder. Lithographic colors are then printed from plates, as many as 7 or 8 printings. This is then followed by a woodburtytype overlay, but there is a possibility that this last layer may be a carbon transfer with a varnish layer on top."THE ARTISTIC TREASURES OF FRANCE" PHOTOCHROMES FROM, 1883
