Description

THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE OF TWO PORTRAITS OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ADMIRAL HERBERT SAWYER. NAMED AS JANE AND WAS PRODUCED AROUND 1790/1810.
THE MINIATURE PORTRAIT IS PRESENTED BEHIND GLASS IN A SIMPLE OBLONG NARROW BRASS FRAME. THERE IS AN INSCRIPTION ON THE BACK WHICH HAS BEEN NOTED AS "MISS JANE SAWYER, DAUGHTER OF ADMIRAL HERBERT SAWYER" WHICH IS ALMOST ILLEGIBLE. THE SITTER IS SHOWN WEARING A VERY PALE BLUE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS EDGED WITH LACE, A LARGE BOW IN THE CENTRE WITH PUFF SLEEVES. A SIMPLE STRAND NECKLACE WITH HER HAIR TIED UP AT THE BACK AND LOOSE CURLS ON EITHER SIDE OF HER FACE. THERE IS A WHITE REFLECTION SPOT ABOVE HER LEFT EYE CAUSED BY LIGHT REFLECTING OFF THE GLASS.
SUPERB DETAILED BRUSHWORK, FINE STRONG COLOUR WITH NO FADING AND LOVELY DETAIL TO HER HAIR AND FACE. I WOULD GUESS HER AGE TO BE IN HER LATE TEENS OR VERY EARLY TWENTIES. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF VERY FINE CRACKS IN THE BASE WHICH ARE PROVING DIFFICULT VERY DIFFICULT TO TRY AND PHOTOGRAPH. ONE WHICH BEGINS HALF WAY UP HER LEFT SLEEVE AND RUNNING UP TO HER EYE LEVEL, THE OTHER AT THE BASE ON THE EDGE OF HER RIGHT SLEEVE AND RUNNING UP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE BOW. THEY ARE STABLE AND DO NOT DISTRACT FROM THE OVERALL IMAGE, THEY ARE PART OF IT'S HISTORY.
DELIVERY IS FREE IN THE UK TRACKED AND INSURED THROUGH ROYAL MAIL.
