A charming portrait of Miss Morris


Artist: Bernard Lens

Signed with gold monogram on the obverse, set in a gilt-metal mount

The size of this miniature indicates that it was probably originally designed to be worn as a ring or stick pin. Lens was the miniature painter at the courts of kings George I and George II, instructor in miniature painting (then called limning)to prince William and princesses Mary and Louise[ and consultant in fine arts to upper-class families.
