Pampered Pooch

Mary Jane Tomalin


Wearing her prettiest dress trimmed with blue ribbon bows and with her golden brown hair perfectly arranged in long ringlets, this girl is shown seated with her cute little spaniel puppy on her lap.

The portrait is signed on the left ‘MJT 1838’ for Mary Jane Tomalin. It is housed with convex glass in a gilt metal frame backed with velvet.

Little is known about Mary Jane Tomalin who exhibited miniatures at the Royal Academy between 1838 and 1859 from an address in Pentonville, London.
