ANSWER: From Etienne de Silhouette, Controlfer General of France In 1759, during the reign of Louie XV. Silhouette was a thrifty man. He tried to put hie country's ft nances in order and cut down many royal pensions. But he also devised a profile-making device. People sneered at this economical form of portraiture and called the shadow pictures "silhouettes." Our picture shows how it was done. The idea was not new — ancient Egyptians and Chinese had made shadow pictures long before this. But now they got new popularity, lasting for a hundred years. Then photographs took their place. In America's colonial days, silhouettes were sought-after since painted portraits were very expensive and painters not plentiful. George and Martha Washington sat for silhouettes. FOR YOU TO DO: Pin a sheet of paper to the wall where a light can cast a deep shadow. Seat your model between the light and the wall, to show the profile. Have the lamp fairly close to the head end level with it. Pencil lightly around the shadow outline. Cut It out and mount on a contrasting sheet of paper.
