Backstrip replaced with cloth tape, boards rubbed, front sewings weakening, scattered foxing throughout. A work on the process of monitoring internal systems of the body through s Even so, in the early years of the twentieth century a law was passed that, for health reasons, prohibited taking the cadaver to the studio, whatever the age.
Broadly speaking, we find three types of post-mortem portraits according to the way in which the deceased was portrayed:. As if they were alive, with eyes open and accompanied by their relatives. In this first type, predominantly from the s and s, the deceased was usually placed in the centre of the composition, surrounded by family or friends.
These would be the most complicated to take for the photographer, who had to keep the cadaver standing up or sitting down with the aid of specific implements, and with eyes open or for it to seem that way, painting them onto the eyelids in the photograph. Retouching the print by hand helped them, in some cases, to achieve the desired effect.

Pretending that they were asleep. It was the predominant type of picture from the s to the s, and of which we have most examples. Lying dead in bed, without hiding the state of the subject. This type is the most popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and, unlike the previous two, it signified a clear acceptance of death.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, post-mortem photographs were still being taken, but the First World War contributed to reducing production. Wars in general led to a new change in the way of dealing with death and in funeral rites. Photojournalism spread very grim images of wars and society wanted to distance itself from the horrors experienced and from everything to do with death.
Nowadays, as we live in the world of the image post-mortem photography would make no sense. We have multiple photographs and videos to enable us to remember our loved ones when they are gone. But there is one case in which the Victorian tradition would make sense: When a child is stillborn or dies soon after birth, the parents have no photographs to enable them to remember it physically and to help them to mourn. For the purpose of comforting these families, various NGOs and websites have been created presenting post-mortem photography projects. The service it performs has been so well received by families that the NGO is already present in over 40 countries around the world and is working with more than 1, volunteer photographers.
In Barcelona, the photographer and psychologist Norma Grau has created the StillBirth project, devoted to families that have suffered the loss of a child. Through her photographs, Grau accompanies them in their grief. The great consolation the images provide for parents can clearly be seen from the long waiting list the photographer has.
Almost two centuries have passed since the first post-mortem photographs, but, as we can see, the reasons that led our forebears to commission them in the nineteenth century is essentially the same as in the twenty-first century: Death and the Daguerreotype: He cannot confirm this as he has not heard from England for some time, "and the letter from More which I now send has been stuck in Saxony for some months". He speaks of King Henry VIII's love for More and his favourable treatment of him, calling him, the king, in Greek philomoros, and of the importance of the standing of the chancellor whose dignity is nearest to that of the king.
Who has succeeded more he does not know. He describes More's London origin - to be a Londoner in England gives one some pretensions of nobility - his father's standing and his own position as a distinguished lawyer; both kings and kingdoms have need of such men both in times of war and peace; war is to be avoided but peace is not an everyday thing, and it brings about corruption in men's morals, unless society is governed by the counsels of wise men [i. He speaks of men deserving nobility rather than simply inheriting it, and cites various examples, some referring to relatively lowly grades of society, including the Codex of Roman Law Book XII, Titulus de professoribus , and of how More, and his father, deserved their nobility.
He also writes of how More hates seditious beliefs. The most fascinating part of the letter is that describing More's house and family, which is almost the prose equivalent of the famous Holbein painting of More and his family lost in a fire in Poland in the 18th century: There he lives with his intimate family circle, his wife, son and daughter-in-law, his three daughters and their husbands, together with his grandchildren who already number eleven.
By the favour of Christ he sees the children of his children, and will see those who will be born from those grandchildren; as there is no one amongst them who is not in the bloom of his age, it is likely that the progeny will be numerous. Hardly anyone else alive is a greater lover of children, and he knows no difference between an old woman and a girl. You would say that his house was another Plato's Academy, but to be frank I am rudely dismissive of his house if I compare it with Plato's Academy, where numbers and geometrical figures, and from time to time moral virtues were the subject of discussion.
More's house you would more justly describe as a school and gymnasium of the christian religion. There is no squabbling there, no ill-tempered word is heard, no one is idle. And More exercises control over his family not by means of curses or sharpness but only by benevolence and companionableness. In the neighbouring church [Chelsea Old Church] he has erected for himself and his family a communal tomb, to which he has transferred the bones of his first wife, from who he will suffer no divorce.
