Private View | Philip Mould & Co.
Wednesday 12 October 2016 - 18:30 until 20:30
Portrait miniatures, the smallest and most intimate type of portrait, were painted from the early 16th century through to the 19th century. Their purpose was often secretive in nature. Small enough to hide, portrait miniatures were exchanged as gifts between lovers or clandestinely worn to show political support. After an introduction to his spectacular gallery by the art dealer and specialist Philip Mould, consultant Emma Rutherford will discuss how miniatures were instrumental in private and public lives.
