Excerpt from Miniatures
Nathaniel Dixon must surely have painted many miniatures wrongly accredited to others, or left without any name to adorn them. He has, I think, failed to obtain sufficient recognition as one of the brilliant con temporaries of Cooper, and the three illustrations from his work given here will be seen to be full of exceptional character and truthfulness.
It will be noticed that the selections from Cooper's art include some of the finest known miniatures by this master. The selection has been made after considerable thought, with the intention of giving the most complete idea of his marvellous grasp of personality, and of placing him in his rightful position as the greatest exponent of the miniature portrait.
