Miniature Hand Painted Framed Blue Boy By Gainsborough - Exquisite 20th Century Copy

Presented here is an exquisitely framed vintage hand painted miniature copy of Gainsborough's Blue Boy in oval frame.

This miniature is under glass and features a beautifully hand painted copy of The Blue Boy, including Gainsborough's signature, done approximately 1930-1940's.

It is set in a gorgeous ornate filigree open work gold tone frame, dog tooth set, and has a round hook to hang on the wall. It will, additionally look beautiful set on a small stand for table top or shelf display.

~ MEASUREMENT: Portrait - 2-3/4" wide x 3-1/2" tall / Frame - 4-1/4" wide x 5-1/4" tall

~ CONDITION: Beautiful. The brass frame had a coating which has chipped, with age, on the back, but in no way effects the viewing beauty and perfection of the front.

~ SIGNED: This painting bears the hand painted copy of Gainsborough's signature. The frame is marked "CZECHOSLOVAKIA".

Throughout the ages, it has been a common practice, for the wealthy to commission hand painted copies of famous paintings. I first saw this when visiting the Louvre in Paris. I spent a great deal of time watching an artist who had been commissioned to do a painted copy of the Mona Lisa!
