European portrait miniatures of the 17th to 20th centuries – far too rarely the focus of art historians’ attention – are illuminated from various viewpoints in a series of essays by nineteen internationally recognised specialists.This volume brings together studies of the many and varied uses of miniature portraits, their functions in both private and public life, and significant yet little-known collections, along with various artists and special production techniques. It documents the results of a conference organised by the Tansey Miniatures Foundation in Celle in January 2013.
