On view here is an interesting French miniature on ivory with portrait of a woman holding a freshly written letter to her parents. The letter addresses the parents "cher papa et maman" and ends with the sitter's own name "Cecile Gorge (?)". On verso of the portrait, one finds an allegorical drawing showing a ring of hearts set in flames. It is signed with a ligated monogram "GB" - the fusion of the surname initials of "our" lady Gorge and that of her (likely) fiance, beginning with the letter "B".
This drawing on verso was clearly executed by another artist: note his or her illegible signature "E. Mon...z" in the 5:00 o'clock area.
