This is the second Miniature Portrait of a Husband and his wife we are listing dating to the first quarter of the 19th century which comes with it's original dark red leather travel case. Superbly painted in oil paint with fine detail and depth of colour, obviously a man of letters and achievement, his serious expression and steady gaze shows all this in an instant. With Victorian paintings the story was so important, they always carried a message so when you view the miniatures side by side show success, wealth and achievement. He is fairly young, possibly in his mid twenties, his hair combed fashionably forward on the top and sides, wearing a white stock, dark high collard waistcoat and dark top coat holding in his right hand a book. The size of the miniature is 85mm high x 66mm wide, the size of the travel case is shown below.
