Charles James Speed

Circa 1849


Looking rather serious, Charles James Speed was just three years old when this charming watercolour was painted. Too young to have been breeched, he is wearing a white dress with a lace bodice and short sleeves trimmed with blue ribbon bows and a matching blue sash, his tiny feet in dainty black shoes with ankle-straps. Charles is shown holding a pink rose by a rose-entwined column in a garden landscape.

The portrait resides in a bird’s eye maple veneer frame with genealogical details attached to the backing board. Very good condition.
