William Charles Ross

1794 - 1860
Ross was the leading exponent of the portrait miniature of his day, and was appointed Miniature Painter to Queen Victoria in 1837. He was celebrated not only for his ability to create a good likeness, but also for his compositions, which often incorporated full-length figures and elaborate backgrounds, making his miniatures small paintings rather than simple head and shoulders portraits.
