Contemplation

Circle of Gervase Spenser

Sold

This small-scale miniature is surprisingly well-detailed. It shows an elegant lady in a cornflower blue dress trimmed with lace, pearls and fresh flowers. She also has a gold bracelet, earrings and a ribbon choker studded with pearls, her upswept hair decorated with tiny flowers and a trailing headdress. With her chin resting on her hand, she contemplates life.

The portrait dates to around the 1750s and is housed in the original gold frame perfect for wearing as a pendant on a chain.
