Diana Gruver This looks like a Post Mortem picture. I say this because of the way his hands are curled up, his foot on the floor is tilted upward, and I believe that you can see the shape of the base of the standing post under the curtain backdrop. A lot of dead people died with their eyes open. He looks as if he was posed. It was done a lot in those days.
