Sofia Mitsola // House of Aquamarina

About

Contemporary miniature paintings by award-winning artist Sofia Mitsola are shown with 30 historic miniatures from The Portland Collection.

The historical works will include portraits of Queen Elizabeth I, Louis XIV, Queen Marie Antoinette, Empress Joséphine, and Eleonara di Toledo.

The miniature of Eleonara di Toledo was previously thought to be a painting of Bianca Capello, Grand Duchess of Tuscany, by an unknown artist. During this project, it was discovered that this miniature is in fact a very rare painting by the Renaissance artist Giulio Clovio, who is regarded as 'Michelangelo of the miniature'.

This is one of only two surviving portraits by Clovio and was once in the Medici collection.
