Country: France: Paris
Tyszkiewicz (born 1862 in Poland) is often identified in photographic reproductions of this period as Graf B. Tyszkiewicz. Graf is German for "count".
Juhl (1989-page #294) identifies Tyszkiewicz as a painter who dedicated himself in his palace in Howory/Polon to the history of wall painting. This may well be the same palace in the present day Lithuania (Palanga) where there is a major tourist attraction: a collection of amber numbering over 25,000 examples. It is interesting to note that this photograph and another variant example in the author's photographic archive feature a partial elaborately painted backdrop.
