Description

Pair of Reverse Glass Painted Portraits dating from the mid Victorian times. They have been newly framed in white wood as black was too dark and I opted for a more modern look, Backed in white to show through the detail. They had been in a drawer hence some abrasions with a nice verre églomisé border

Reverse painting on glass is an art form consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image. Another term used to refer to the art of cold painting and gilding on the back of glass is verre églomisé, named after the French decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–86), who framed prints using glass that had been reverse-painted.In German it is known as Hinterglasmalerei.
