Delightful portrait miniature in watercolor on ivory of a young girl, by French artist Marie-Marguerite Françoise Jaser (1782-1873), later Rouchier. The sitter is identified as “Henriette le Brun, née Drolenvaux, grandetante (great aunt) de Nancy et Paul Duchat.” The girl wears a simple white dress – it is her pose, the tilt of her head, the wistful expression so skillfully drawn, that make this portrait so compelling. It is signed along the right edge “Mte. Jaser”. Jaser (her mar...

This is one of the loveliest, most poignant Georgian memorials I’ve ever seen, commemorating the death of a child! An angel and a child rise through the sky, the angel pointing toward heaven. The artistry and balance of the composition is amazing; the angel has dark wings and dress and protectively surrounds the sweet child, dressed all in white. They rise heavenward in a blue sky with dark clouds – all elements are beautifully balanced. Wonderful condition; there’s a small spot of dir...
