Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Bust-length, almost frontal portrait of a dark-haired young man with eyes towards the observer. He wears a navy blue coat and white muslin stock. The gold frame is set with thirty-nine old mine-cut diamonds with a total weight of about 9.5 carats. The sitter appears to wear a diamond stud on his shirt front. The back is decorated with plaited field of hair which covers the whole of the surface. The miniature was probably painted in France.
