Miss Charlotte Jones (1768-1847)

Circa 1805


A half-length miniature portrait of an elegant young Regency lady by a classical column before a deep red drape.

Miss Charlotte Jones took up painting following the death of her father and benefited from lessons with Richard Cosway and the recognition of Sir Thomas Lawrence who promoted her work. She became a personal friend to Princess Charlotte and was appointed her miniature painter, first painting her in her cradle. It follows then that there are several examples of her work in the Royal Collection.
