A beautifully drawn miniature on natural organic material portrait painting, attributed to Thomas Hazlehurst. The piece has a somewhat ethereal feel to it, with the sitter, in a gauzy white gown, and wearing a double strand of pearls, gazing rather wistfully at the viewer. The portrait is dated 1805, and while not signed, stylistically it would most likely would have been done either by Hazlehurst or John Barry. However, Barry used a different color palette for shading, and his facial brush strokes are quite different than those in this piece. The bluish shading in the face, and the linear parallel lines in the hair lead, instead, to an almost certain conclusion that this is a Hazlehurst work.

This little gem is 2 3/4" by 2 3/8" and is in superb condition. The original case is also like new, and is enhanced on the reverse by elaborate hairwork and the initials "HC" picked out in pearls.
Note: Hazelhurst (c 1740 - c 1821), was born in Liverpool and worked as a miniaturist from 1760 to 1818. He was exhibited at the Liverpool Academy and the Society for Promoting Painting and Design.
