Chopin Deathbed Photo Surfaces

Is the picture in the Reuters video below a daguerrotype of Chopin on his deathbed? Or is the photo a cleverly manufactured fake?

(Via Clef Notes)


  1. I'm inclined to believe this is a fake. In fact, I'm more than inclined - I'm all but certain. Chopin, according to all paintings, masks, the existing daguerrotype and photograph, had full, round lips - this image doesn't. The nose isn't quite right either.

    Would anyone have full round lips on their deathbed???
