Caroline Anne Vansittart (b.1772) with her brother Henry, after John Russell

£ 3,000

Artist: Henry Bone

Signed on the obverse, and fully inscribed on the reverse and dated 1830
Caroline was the eldest daughter of George Vansittart. She married Augustus Henry East in 1792 aged 20. Henry East became a Rear Admiral.
Bone was appointed Royal Enamelist to King George III, George IV and William IV. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, producing a number of enamel copies of the work of the great Renaissance and Baroque masters. He was able to sell many of these works, since such subjects were popular in the early nineteenth century. He also continued to receive a steady number of commissions from the Prince of Wales and several other aristocratic patrons for enamel miniatures.

No other enamel artist of the time could produce such large, high quality works. Bone came to be known as the "Prince of Enamelers," as his enamel work has seldom been equalled.
