Love and Loss. American Portrait and Mourning Miniatures.

New Haven Yale University Press: 2000.

The beautifully produced catalog to the traveling loan exhibition of portrait miniatures assembled by the Yale University Art Gallery.

Other chapters cover the role miniatures played in society, the miniaturists who created these tiny jewels, and the competition between miniatures and photography. The catalog features brilliant color photographs and many enlargements of details.
