An artistic masterpiece
In a world before photography, portrait miniatures were the wallet photographs or their day. Made to be held, worn, and hung on the wall of the home as a type of “family album,” the small-scale portraits afford us an extremely personal glimpse into the past. Here are a few of my favorites
The artist, George Engleheart (English, 1750–1829), was a miniature painter to King George III of England. An excellent example of Engleheart’s style, this miniature uses a restricted palette of white, gray, and blue, with touches of pink on the lips and cheeks.
