The Very Best of Contemporary Miniature Art

This small exhibition from the Sue Lee Trust (in association with the Hilliard Society) contains 57 miniature paintings and is presented with a narrative detailing the development of miniature art from its beginnings in the sixteenth century through to the modern day. The 57 paintings, in various media, illustrate the exceptional skills required to produce this specialist art form. Modern facilities mean the level of skills illustrated exceed those achievable by the old masters such as Hilliard and Rowland Lockey. Contemporary miniature art is enjoying a rise in popularity and this exhibition captures their unique appeal.
