Henry Bone (1755-1834), was an enamel painter who he moved from Cornwall to London in 1779 where he worked on jewellery designs and the enamelling of watches and fans. He began to exhibit miniatures at the Royal Academy in 1781. He executed many beautiful miniature pieces of much larger size than had been attempted before in England. Among them are copies of eighty-five portraits painted during the time of Queen Elizabeth I that are considered among his greatest works.
