Silhouette (circa 1870)

Miss Guinness


Gouache, pen, and ink

52 x 44 cm

Silhouettes of other members of the Guinness family of brewers and bankers are also available in this set. The Guinness family seat is Elveden Hall in Suffolk.

Prior to photography, silhouettes were the easiest way of recording a person’s appearance. This set might record the group present at a country house party, a wedding, or other similar convivial occasion.

Condition: generally good; some staining to edges.
