SALTED PAPER PRINT (CALOTYPE) by D. O. Hill and Robert Adamson, 1843-1847 - the Dennistoun monument in Greyfriars' Churchyard, Edinburgh, with posed figures, including Hill himself (left); this image, sometimes known as 'The Artist and the Gravedigger', while less typical than Hill & Adamson's beautiful portraits, exemplifies their aspiration for a thoughtful emblematic art, much influenced by the example of Talbot's Pencil of Nature
