MIA in Detail: Clue 6

Posted on by Minneapolis Institute of Arts

This Derbyshire naval officer is most dapper in this painting by one of 18th century America’s preeminent portraitists.

Can you name the artist and the subject of this portrait?


Last week’s clue: During an exhibition in 1846, one critic noted that the prominent nosegay of violets expressed “sentimental flirtatiousness.”

What painting is the critic referring to, and who painted it?







Answer: The painting the critic was referring to is the¬† “Portrait of Cl√©mentine (Mrs. Alphonse) Karr”, painted by Henri Lehmann in 1845.
