Description

Excerpt from Miniatures The literature on miniatures has not been extensive, and the tendency to increase its volume at the present time is sufficient reason for wishing to widen its grasp and survey by a painter's view of the subject. Dr. Propert's excellent history of the art still retains its place as a scholarly book of reference from the collector's point of view. Unfortunately its limited edition could only reach the very few connoisseurs and collectors who were wise enough to obtain a copy whilst it was still in print. The series of exhibitions which have been held in recent years of the past masters of the art, the formation of two societies for the encouragement of modern miniature painting, and the spread of magazine literature devoted to this subject, have helped the general advancement in taste and knowledge, so that to-day the interest in the historical aspect of this English art of portraiture 'in little' is not confined to the wealthy connoisseurs, but can claim many enthusiasts with less means but no less judgment. Unfortunately, our public national collections are in no way complete records of the best miniaturists of any period, and it is only the exceptionally privileged who have had the opportunity of studying the wealth of fine work that is possessed by many of our oldest families. The chief object of this volume is to place before the connoisseur - and I use the word in its widest sense - a historical account of the art of miniature which shall be suggestive and stimulating to further study and appreciation, rather than an exhaustive catalogue or an authoritative guide for the specialist.
