Tayler, Charles Foot - portrait of old lady

Both these miniature portraits are signed "C F Tayler 1820" for Charles Foot Tayler (1800 - 1853). He came from the Isle of Wight, but painted in Bath for many years. The portraits are interesting, as they would have been painted at the same time, but for different members of the sitter's family. One came from California and one from Kent, England, so it was nice to reunite them.

The sitter is unknown, but one of them has an inscription on the rear "Princess of Stacia. Painted by C F Taylor 1820". However, this name has not yet been traced. 1106, 1187
