Charles James Speed
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.
