Portrait of a Lady
The small scale of this picture, in between a life-size portrait and a miniature is unusual, although there are other instances by this artist. As is typical in the work of Cornelius Johnson, the sitter's costume is depicted in seemingly accurate and painstaking detail. A particular interesting feature is the sitter's earring which appears to be in the form of a hand.
