Silhouette of a boy facing right, set within a verre eglomise glass surround and period gilt frame. A wonderful full length gilt highlighted silhouette of a boy in period dress. The picture is dated to about 1800-1820 as indicated by the dress of the time. It is framed in contemporaneous moulding and verre eglomise glass setting off the picture to best effect. It is an excellent example of the art of water colour silhouettes of the period on paper. The sitter is probably a schoolboy, complete with book.
