Superb Fancy Back French Miniature Portrait c 1790
Please refer to our stock # a1631 when inquiring.
A beautifully painted portrait of a well-dressed gentleman. As superb as the painting is, it is matched by the reverse of the miniature, which has interwoven plaits of hair and an organic plaque decorated with the initials "EW" on a monument which is topped with a quiver and arrow.
The photos do not even begin to do justice to this superb piece, which has fine limning, vibrant colors, and no damage at all. The color differences and light lines on the front and back are due to reflections. The gilt bronze frame is a goodly 2 3/4" in diameter.
