A Young Lady


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The young lady in this miniature wears a white evening dress with a bertha (off-the-shoulder) neckline with two deep flounces of lace and pearl jewelry. The miniature is housed in an elaborate leather case, tooled with gold and lined with velvet. Although the initials "R.F." appear at the lower right, the attribution from the Fink catalog to Robert Field is likely incorrect as Field died in 1819 and the woman's costume clearly dates from the mid-19th century.
Provenance Jacob A. Rosenfield, Chicago [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; A.J. Fink, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; A.J. Fink Foundation Inc., Baltimore, [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1963, by gift.
Inscriptions [Initials] lower right: R.F. [Stickers] on back of case: 70; No. 3; 3 (on red circle with zig-zig edges); A.J. Fink Collection Baltimore, No. 302.
Credit Gift of the A. Jay Fink Foundation, Inc., Baltimore, in memory of Abraham Jay Fink, 1963
