Medium:
watercolor on ivory
Dimensions:
4 3/4 x 3 3/4 in. (12.1 x 9.5 cm) rectangle
Type:
Painting-Miniature
Date:
1867
Description:
Although Henry Brintnell Bounetheau painted this work when he was seventy years old, an inscription inside the miniature makes it clear that he based it on the way he looked at age fifty. The artist may have had another miniature or picture of himself at this age to use as a guide in portraying himself younger than his true years. Conservation of this miniature was made possible through a generous grant provided by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.

Type:

Object Name:
Drawing
Date:
18th century
Catalogue Status:
Research in Progress
Description:
A central figure is seated on layers of geometric and vegetal carpets, wearing a short-sleeved robe composed of many male figures and animals that are constrained to the frame of the garment. A garment like a coronet draped with a white cloth is worn upon the head. The figure is holding in the right hand a small vessel with a bird perched upon the rim. Laid upon a small carpet at the feet of the figure is a bowl of fruit, two small vessels, and a tall, handled ewer with elongated spout. In the background (possibly viewed through a window?) is a large green mound framed by two trees in bloom, with clouds rendered to appear fast-moving.
