Brilliant Portrait Miniature American Civil War Signed and Dated 1860

It also was produced 1860 (pre 1900). This miniature represents the pinnacle of photorealistic miniature painting.

It's hard to fathom the skill required to achieve this level of realism in this format. The miniature is signed lower right in monogram, "CLB/60". I haven't been able to locate the artist by these initials, the work is very much like the miniature of Henry Brown of the period but frankly is more fine than his work. Excellent condition in later frame with oak mat. Sight size is approx 4" x 3 1/2".
