Luce Artist Biography

Peregrine Cooper worked in Philadelphia and published a book on painting miniatures in 1863. That year, he described himself as having “the experience of twenty-three years in study and practice on miniature painting, twelve years of that time principally devoted to Talbotype, or Photograph and Ivorytype Coloring.” Talbotype, invented by William Henry Fox Talbot, was a method of taking photographic images on paper coated with iodide of silver, and an ivorytype was a picture made by placing a very light, translucent image over a stronger print.
