Description

Circle of Jeremiah MEYER (1735-1789)

A small, unsigned, modest school miniature dating to around 1780, in the style of Jeremiah Meyer. His work is characterised by, angular draughtsmanship of the mouth and nose. The eyes are often placed close together and sunk under the lids. The lips protrude slightly and the costumes touched up with opaque white. The carmines sometimes fade. Many of these features can be seen on this miniature. The background colour is also similar to that favoured by Meyer.

Jeremiah Meyer RA (born Jeremias Majer; 18 January 1735 – 20 January 1789) was an 18th-century English miniature painter. He was Painter in Miniatures to Queen Charlotte, Painter in Enamels to King George III and was one of the founder members of the Royal Academy.
