Mrs Henry Leete
An oval miniature in watercolour on card of Mrs Henry Leete, in an oval gilded window mount set in a rectangular black backing board within a partly gilded plain maple picture frame. It is one of a similarly mounted pair, the other showing the Reverend Leete the sitter's husband, though the images are probably themselves not a pair. In this case, unlike the other, the sitter is shown facing entirely to her right, in profile and almost in monochrome, though this may be due to pigment fading. She wears a high-waisted pale gown with sleeves, bearing a bow on the upper left arm. Her hair is tightly gathered on her head with a small headdress of flowers, behind a transverse parting and curls coming forward over her forehead. She also wears plain earrings and what is probably a pink-coral bead necklace. Bequeathed by Arthur Shute Leete in October 1947.
