Jewel in the Hand

Early Portrait Miniatures from Noble & Private Collections

Jewel in the Hand is a unique chance to see some of the earliest portrait miniatures displayed as they would have been originally worn...

This exhibition will show early portrait miniatures from noble and private collections not ordinarily on view to the public. There will be examples by the most important artists of the period, including Elizabeth I's image-maker Nicholas Hilliard (1547?-1619), his pupil Isaac Oliver (c.1565-1617) and his son Peter Oliver (circa 1589-1647). Primarily this intimate art form was confined to courtly circles and the exhibition will include portraits of Queen Elizabeth I, King James I and his wife Anne of Denmark alongside members of the nobility. Displayed as they would have been worn, the exhibition will also explore how these small portraits were used in the political and social circles of 16th and 17th century Europe.
