Miniatures - Portraits of a married couple

Unknown author. Exhibited miniatures were made in the first third of the 19th century, which could be concluded on the basis of costumes portrayed persons. These types of portraits were painted in gouache technique on ivory leaf and required great skill, which is visible in these works. Miniatures were especially popular during the Rococo to Biedermeier, but with the advent of photography in the mid 19th century this type of painting was suddenly gone.
