[Watercolours] Beard, M. A.

Transformation Cards

1855. 11,5 x 13 cm. A watercolour portrait of a beautiful young woman and six cut out cards in watercolour depicting different costumes to dress the young woman.

Slight age toning of the cards. The odd small spot.

There are two names on the back of the card of the young woman E. M. Gulland (the girl?) and M. A. Beard (the artist?). The year 1855 is also noted. Five of the cut out cards have annotations on the back: Gypsy, Roman Peasant, Aragon, Swiss and Turkish. One card has no annotation but looks like a queen with a crown. All in contemporary hand writing. A very charming set of cards.
