This charming and rare, Continental School miniature portrait captures the smiling face and modest dress of a young woman in exquisite detail. Intricate touches of gilt highlight the lady's fine jewelry, perhaps to indicate her wealth and status. The Continental School genre encompasses a wide variety of media from large oil to intimate miniatures such as this portrait. Most often associated with the late 19th century and early 20th century, the genre focuses on subject matter that is recognizably European, and worked to create a sense of nostalgia earlier times and places.

Circa 1830

Portrait: 2 3/4" high
