Wearing decollete white dress, set in gold coloured frame the reverse with gold monogram HC on plaited hair

The soft grey background was not usually found in the work of British miniature artists working at the beginning of the 19th century, but is often found in the work of Stroehling, - a Russian by German descent - who was working in London between 1803-07 and again 1819-26. The fine linear treatment of hair with the delineation of single strands is also a trait seen in Stroehling's work.
