Georgian Miniature of a Naval Officer
Very fine reverse painting on convex glass within a gilt, verre eglomisé border. Sitter facing sinister, the officer wearing a powdered pigtail, epaulettes, black stock and the white frill of a chemise at his neck. Each of his buttons is finely painted with an anchor, affirming his identity as a Naval officer. The miniature is set over a plaster plate, upon which a silhouette of the minutely detailed painting can be seen. It is set in a papier maché frame with a pear wood oval mount. Although unsigned, from comparison with the work, mounts and frames from miniatures that bear the inscription 'Lea - Portsmouth' c1768-1828), it is undoubtedly by the same artist.
