The Miniaturists III

A catalogue to accompany our third instalment of The Miniaturists, November & December 2019

For this collection, we were inspired by the miniatures of Hilliaird & Oliver, which were exhibited in Elizabethan Treasures at the Portrait Gallery earlier this year. As our first two editions were limited to three dimensional objects, we wanted to continue the theme but broaden the challenge to fine artists and include tapestry for the first time.

The artworks are 7.5 cm square, two dimensional in format, with anomalies here and there. We are overwhelmed by our artists’ response; some have spent more time creating a miniature than a full size work or rather have regarded the miniature in exactly the same terms as a large scale work. We are, as ever, indebted to all the artists who responded to the brief with such enthusiasm and detail; for many, making a miniature has given birth to new ideas and directions.
