Gallery 100 ‘A History of Photography’, 2014-2015, label text: Charles Thurston Thompson (1816–68) Raphael Cartoon, with Condition Report Annotations About 1858 The Raphael Cartoons were photographed at Hampton Court Palace before they came to the Museum. Thurston Thompson had a special camera constructed to hold large glass negatives. Full daylight was required for the exposure, so the fragile Cartoons were hung out of the Palace windows. The Inspector-General for Art marked these prints to identify areas requiring treatment – possibly the first use of photography for conservation. Albumen print Museum no. 76:598 (06 03 2014)
