Small Portraits of Character


Wigs on the Green specialises in fine portrait miniatures, silhouettes, small portraits, and provincial art, predominantly from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Our portraits are selected for their historical interest and character. They are not only by listed artists but also those who painted and drew for their own entertainment and pleasure - true to life portraits, with real character and, often, a pretty face!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: During this period of global uncertainty, we cannot post items overseas. We remain open for business with new stock being regularly added. UK postage will continue with DHL. For international sales, items can be reserved upon payment of at least a 10% deposit with shipping re-commencing as soon as it is deemed safe and sensible to do so.
