The Newborn

Circa 1810


This delightful double portrait shows a young Regency mother with her sweet little baby. She is wearing a white empire-line dress with a ruff collar fill-in and a golden yellow shawl, her blonde hair curled and upswept with a bandeau decorated with roses. Her blue-eyed baby wears a white lace cap trimmed with a rosette.

The portrait is housed behind convex glass in a traditional papier-mâché frame with a decorative surround and an acorn hanger.
