18th century French miniature portrait set in a later 19th century gold ring.

Capturing a sudden moment in time, within a painting is not the easiest thing to do, and on a miniature scale adds to those odds. This fine miniature portrait probably portrays a young girl whilst looking at the portrait together with the artists use of colour for the background, you can imagine as though she had just finished bathing and emerging from a steamy bathroom. Whatever is portrayed here it remains subjective to the observer. 

The miniature portrait 18th century circa 1790 mounted in a later gold ring circa 1870. 

US size 5 1/2
