A Portrait of Louis BrailleMiniature portrait on ivory by Lucienne Filippi.
This image of Louis Braille was derived from a daguerreotype, taken shortly after his death. This is the visage of a dead man; in life, he kept his eyes open. "Louis was of medium height, slender, quite dtreamlined, and elegantly muscular. His head leaned forward, his blond hair curled naturally, his movements were free and easy."
