This listing is for beautiful and sensitively painted Georgian Miniature Portrait of a young Girl possibly around 11 years of age and could even be a little younger, the Georgian artists often painted children as mini adults with young boys with a slight feminine look but I am confident that this is a girl. The young girl is wearing a simple white dress with lace around the square neckline with small blue ribbons on her shoulders. Her hair is cut short with a large natural curl on either side of her head and painted against a faded blue sky. The miniature is presented behind glass in an oblong gilt bezel set in a papier mache frame with gilt hanger and ring. With a sealed back held in place with four hand cut tiny caps. The size of the miniature is 77mm high x 60mm wide, the frame size is shown below.
Celia Rose Antiques has clarified that the Georgian Portrait Miniature Angelic Young Girl C.1780 (LA328221) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being C.1780
In lovely antique condition, with no damage to the miniature, there is some fading to the painting which seems to add to the angelic quality of the painting. The frame is in excellent condition.
