Lot 0033
A well painted miniature, on natural organic material, of an older gentleman. He is dressed in a blue coat with brass buttons and a white shirt and cravat. However, he is wearing glasses, which is very rarely depicted in portraits. The blue background nicely complements his clothing. The portrait is signed, lower right, with the initials "W.B." As of yet, my research has not determined the name of the artist. There is a thick cutting of hair displayed on the white glass back of the gilt metal case. E. Grosvenor Paine provenance.
The painting is in excellent condition, as is the case, which measures 1 15/16" by 1 1/2".
