I think it is Chopin, but I would not go so far as to say that it is a photograph. Photography was still young and very rare when Chopin was living his last few years. During the American Civil war is when photography became very popular. Only 16 years after Chopin's death

i agree about the fact the photogrtaphy was new when chopin was in his final years....but as i said...i know almost all of chopin iconography, and this is not a painting....my guess, and it is a guess....that this picture was taken a earlier from his only famous picture...and that the technology was even less sophisticatd,,,and that what came out...
i mean, you can clearly see it is not a painting...at least this is my opinion.....

thanks for your time :):)
