Description
National Portrait Gallery
Described as ‘a thing apart from all other painting or drawing’, the portrait miniatures of Elizabethan and Jacobean England are some of the greatest works of art to be produced in the British Isles. A fascinating study of English portrait miniature painting (once known as ‘limning’) with over a hundred astonishing illustrations, published to accompany the National Portrait Gallery’s 2019 exhibition. With special reference to two of its most accomplished practitioners, Nicholas Hilliard (1547–1619) and Isaac Oliver (c.1565–1617), this richly illustrated book explores what the portrait miniature reveals about identity, society and visual culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England.

I wanted to buy this previously but decided the price was prohibitive. Buying it in the sale made me feel less guilty!
