Harrogate Fair

The "cognoscenti of the North" are wetting themselves with excitement at the prospect of the Harrogate Antique and Fine Art Fair, which runs from 2 - 5 May (CLICK). Philip Mould & Company will be attending the fair for the first time, taking a selection of exquisite miniatures to display. This lovely young lady caught my eye: Elizabeth Haughton, the daughter of a wealthy Jamaican plantation owner. She looks remarkably modern, but John Smart painted her portrait in 1775 when she was 17 years old (CLICK).
