Bathing Nymphs In a Brook Miniature

Bathing Nymphs In a Brook Miniature

A rather risqué 19th-century miniature depicting five nymphs bathing alongside a brook. It’s likely to be the kind of piece that a gentleman would purchase on a tour of France to impress his acquaintances (in private).

It’s painted onto copper and housed within its original boxwood frame.
