Bonnie Prince Charlie & the Jacobites - Portrait in miniature: Prince Charles Edward Stuart
From Fiona Buckland
What is it?
This is a miniature portrait of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, fixed to a mother-of-pearl mount.
Why is it important?
This portrait became an iconic image of the Prince in Scotland. It derives from the oil on canvas portrait by Ramsay – only notice that here the Prince wears two different types of tartan plus the Order of the Garter.
In this short film Viccy Coltman discusses the miniature.
