Antique Miniature Portrait of the Duchess of Devonshire by Gainsborough

SOLD

Duchess of Devonshire

Description: Exquisite miniature portrait of the Duchess of Devonshire.  Many reproductions were made of her, and this one in particular by the popular portrait artist Gainsborough, is breathtaking in its simple understated beauty.  The brush strokes are very soft and the muted colors still show true and unfaded.  And the frame?  It is filigree.  I am in love with all things filigree.  The portrait can either be hung or used on its stand.

History: Purchased at auction in Amsterdam. The portrait is from the late 19th Century with signature of Gainsborough.

Material:  Domed glass and undetermined metal material.  Hand painted.
