We can see from this scene that parents have overreacted to teenage behavior since at least the 1850s. A girl and a boy lounge in the grass. A basket of wildflowers lies at the girl’s feet. The boy innocently offers her a small bouquet. Meanwhile, the girl’s father discovers them and charges through the bushes with a rake, looking rather upset. Parents can be so uptight!
This carte-de-visite was made by the studio of Furne Fils & H. Tournier in Paris. The partners were Charles Furne (1794-1859), his son Charles Paul Furne (1824-1880), and Henri Alexis Omer Tournier. The J. Paul Getty Museum has a small collection of stereographs made by the studio, mostly landscape views, which date to 1858-1861. The Art Institute of Chicago has two CDVs which the museum’s website says were made between 1860 and 1869, after the senior Furne had died. Interestingly, one of those prints is an artistic likeness of Abraham Lincoln, reproduced from a painting or drawing.
