The 4th Marquess of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace were both passionate collectors of miniatures, generally made for private contemplation and one of the most popular mediums of portraiture in an age before the advent of photography.
This book, written by two of the Collection's curators, presents one of the major British collections of miniatures, a group of over 330 works which formed part of the generous bequest to the British nation made by Lady Wallace in 1897. The collection, made of works from the mid-16th to the late 19th century, includes the best group of French miniatures in Britain, as well as fine examples of English miniature painting and works from other schools.
