A sweet watercolour of a charming rural scene, in miniature. On buff-coloured paper.

11.7cm x 7.1cm.

Miniature art has a unique appeal. Miniatures became especially popular in Europe in the 16th century, and became increasingly popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. Condensed into a small composition, the key components of a view can be used to communicate the effect of an entire landscape.
