Barthes reproduces an 1863 portrait of Queen Victoria on horseback (CL 56) along with a caption that appears nowhere in his text: “‘Queen Victoria, entirely unaesthetic . . . ’ (Virginia Woolf ).”
The same caption appears, in English, in La chambre claire (92). In 1961, Barthes described the interplay between photograph and caption in “The Photographic Message”: “The caption, by its very disposition, by its average measure of reading, appears to duplicate the image, that is, to be included in its denotation.” Barthes, Image Music Text, 26.
