Watercolour Portrait miniature of Lord Byron on ivory

Go to Nottingham City Museums
NA 2023

This portrait of Byron is believed to have been painted when the poet was 29 years old and living in Venice. It is possibly one of the miniatures to which Byron refers in letters written from Venice in the spring of 1817 to his half-sister Augusta Leigh and to his publisher John Murray.
