Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Study the dynamic art of portrait miniatures in Portrait Miniatures From the Time of Holbein to That of Sir William Ross: a Handbook for Collectors by art historian George Williamson, which surveys the works of the artists who made portrait miniatures. Williamson explains that the practice of portrait miniature originated in manuscript illustration, and may also be an outgrowth of treaties and maps, which often attached portraits of ambassadors for verification. Miniature in this context refers to the fact that the paintings were actually portable. The book begins with a 40-page essay and is followed by dozens of reproductions of the paintings discussed within the text. Williamson identifies Hans Holbein as the greatest painter of portrait miniatures and he presents several examples of Holbein s art, explaining what it is that makes the examples masterworks . One of the portraits pictured in the book was on loan from J.P. Morgan s private collection and many of the portraits reproduced for the book were leant by their famous collectors. Englishmen Samuel Cooper is considered the greatest English practitioner of portrait miniatures. Little is known about Cooper s life even to this day, and Williamson connects the dots that are known about his life supported by evidence from the paintings. In the 18th Century, painters like Richard Cosway refined the techniques of Holbein, Cooper and others. Williamson helpfully notes that painters of the era were under different conditions than their predecessors. The public wanted paintings done faster and lighter, and with more charming and sensitive tones, and the reproductions attempt to illustrate this change in portrait miniatures. Portrait Miniatures From the Time of Holbein to That of Sir William Ross: a Handbook for Collectors concludes with Sir William Ross, who many consider the last of the great miniature portrait artists. Although the art may have gradually died out, the examples cited in this book are inspirational and the art lives on in collections and museums around the world. Portrait Miniatures From the Time of Holbein to That of Sir William Ross: a Handbook for Collectors was written for collectors, but anyone interested in art will enjoy the essay and paintings.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from How to Identify Portrait Miniatures It has been suggested to me that many persons unable to acquire my larger History of Portrait Miniatures, would be glad to have a small work giving such assistance to the collector of miniatures as is needed, with respect especially to signatures, dates, colouring, and other means of identification. Hence the issue of this handbook, which it is hoped will be of service to the industrious collector. The opportunity has been utilized to incorporate a few extra facts that have come to my knowledge since the issue of my larger work, and to give illustrations of certain miniatures recently sold. In view of the revival of the art of miniature painting, it has also seemed a fitting opportunity to add some chapters dealing with the practical side of the art, and these chapters I have prevailed upon my friend Mr. Alyn Williams to write, considering that as the leading miniature painter of the day he was better qualified than any other person to give the instruction required.
