description: These miniatures display James Sanford Ellsworth’s unique approach to painting his sitters. They are shown in profile, seated in a Victorian armchair with their hands crossed. The chair appears to dissolve into a swirling arabesque, with a “clover-leaf” halo surrounding the sitter’s head and cloudlike forms in the background.
