A miniature portrait of a young boy holding a flute-like instrument. The work is done in watercolor on organic wafer, and has a wonderful ethereal and luminescent quality to it. On the reverse, under glass, is the following information: ""Henry Brooke/born Dec. 26th 1796 painted by his Mother". Housed in its original leather case, which closes properly but does not latch.

The painting is without any condition issues, with a sight size of 3 3/4" by 2 7/8", and the overall size, including the case, of 4 1/8" by 3 1/8".
