"Portrait of King George III's daughter Princess Elisabeth, Landgravine of Hesse-Homburg (1770-1840)". This miniature is an author's replic of the miniature portrait in Buckingham Palace (see our additional image with a clip from Richard Walker "The Eighteenth and early Nineteenth century Miniatures in the Collection of Her Majesty the Queen" Cambridge 1992, p. 168-169, No. 337). As mentioned by R.Walker, both versions are copies after the portrait of Princess Elisabeth painted in the late 1790s by Sir William Beechey (1753-1839). This portrait has also been engraved in 1806 by Thomas Cheesman (1760-1839)

Miss Emma Eleonora Kendrick (ca.1788 - 1871 London) was daughter of the sculptor Joseph Kendrick. She was awarded several prizes by the Society of Arts in 1810-1817 and in 1811-1840 exhibited at the Royal Academy, S.B.A., O.W.C.S., and N.W.C.S. In 1831 Kendrick was appointed miniature painter to Princess Elisabeth of Hesse-Homburg and to William IV. The artist painted miniatures, genre subjects in watercolor and in 1830 published Conversations on the Art of Miniature Painting. The artist normally signed on verso in full, e.g. Emma Eleonora Kendrick /Pinxit 18... /Duchess Street /Portland Place. The Victoria and Albert Museum has a miniature by her of Lady Caroline Lamb. Her seen miniatures show the influence of Sir Thomas Lawrence's miniatures. (This information is taken from the Miniatures Dictionary of Daphne Foskett).

Our two last additional images show other portraits of Princesss Elisabeth painted by this artist.
