This stunning little portrait miniature was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1795 to 1800. The watercolor painting is on card and depicts a beautiful female sitter in profile view, we have called her Cassandra. The young sitter is wearing a fine white muslin dress and a lace cap, the artist was clearly very talented to have captured the delicacy of the white lace cap and the way the little curls in her hair have been painted to frame her face. We particularly like the finely graded brown background, tirelessly made up of tiny alternating hatched marks with the fine tip of the artist’s brush. The portrait is housed behind its original convex glass in its original papier mache frame; the top brass star burst hanger is also very decorative.
This is a wholly original portrait from the George III period. This is the perfect item for anyone with a passion for the Georgian period, in particular costume or Jane Austen novels.
