This is a lovely Silhouette of a Gentleman believed to have been created by the celebrated English artist, John Miers (1756-1821). Miers was the most famous profilist or painter of Silhouettes in Britain. There is a very interesting Miers label on the back of this piece, which is in the original frame. The bust is on plaster, and is circa 1790. The framed piece is 6 an 3/4 inches North to South, and 5 and 1/2 inches East to West. It is in excellent condition.
