-*''[[Fading Away]]'' by [[Henry Peach Robinson]]+*''[[Fading Away]]'' a photograph by [[Henry Peach Robinson]]
-**Perhaps the most famous of his pictures is ''Fading Away'' ([[1858]]), a composition of five negatives, in which he depicts a girl dying of consumption (which we know as tuberculosis), and the despair of the other members of the family. This was a controversial photograph, and some felt that the subject was not suitable for photography. One critic said that Robinson had cashed in on "the most painful sentiments which it is the lot of human beings to experience." It would seem that it was perfectly in order for painters to paint pictures on such themes, but not for photographers to do so. However, the picture captured the imagination of Prince Albert, who bought a copy and issued an order for every composite portrait he produced subsequently.+
