120 works from the celebrated Tansey collection shed light on the hitherto little-known portrait miniatures from the Baroque period. They are reproduced in original size and colour with individual descriptions. Accompanied by knowledgeable essays, they provide an overview, the like of which no other publication has ever been able to deliver. This catalogue is the first publication ever devoted to 17th century portrait miniatures. The little-known but particularly impressive miniature painting of the Baroque age is presented with the aid of 120 works from the Tansey Collection, one of Europe's leading private collections of miniatures. The works can be compared with each other in original-size and colour reproductions, as well as many detail enlargements. Foremost specialists in this art sector have contributed detailed and richly illustrated introductory essays. The book allows a comprehensive insight into the art of miniature painting in this magnificent era.
