A second tranche from a single-owner collection of French and English portrait miniatures will go under the hammer at Drouot on March 29 – part of a classic mixed-discipline sale held by Binoche et Giquello. The collection was assembled over a 40-year period under the guidance of Leo R Schidlof, author of the four-volume publication The Miniature in Europe. The first part of the collection was sold in 2012.

This time some 40 portraits will be offered, spanning the 17th to 19th centuries. Among them is this double-sided miniature on ivory by the English painter Andrew Plimer (1763-1837). One side depicts a gentleman catalogued as ‘Sir A Floyd’ while the other depicts his twin daughters. Set in a case bordered by a plaited tress of hair, the estimate is €3000-4000.
