This miniature on ivory superior quality with a portrait of a young noblewoman in a white Empire gown and a string of corrals around her neck finally, ten years after its acquisition, obtained the name of its author in August 2020. With help of Mr. David Missen we learned that it is a very typical work of well-known English, turn of the 19th century miniaturist Nicholas Freese (CLICK HERE and HERE and see our images nr.7-9).

Nicholas Freese was christened on 23rd June 1762, at St.Martin, Birmingham as the son of Nicholas Freese and Elizabeth Rowney, who were married at the same church on 30 March 1758. They also had another son, George christened on 10 April, 1767 and three daughters Charlotte, christened on 5 March 1764, Margaretta christened on 23 August 1765, and Elizabeth christened on 22 November 1768. Nicholas apparently moved to London to study and then married Mary Stokes on 29 August 1791 at St Martin in the Fields, Westminster, London. They evidently had a son, George Fraser Freese, in 1792. Foskett notes that he was active in London in 1794-1814, regularly showing his works at the Royal Academy.
"N Freese, an artist" is recorded in Boyle's Court Guide for April 1824, as living at 9 Percy St, London.


In its quality, this portrait can compete with works of the best English miniaturists of that period.

We are very grateful to Mr. Missen for his generous help
