On loan from the Birmingham Museum of Art, this unique exhibition features hand-painted portraits of individual eyes. In this late-18th-century art form, fragile watercolors were meticulously dabbed on tiny pieces of ivory ensconced in jewelry forms.
Lavishly adorned with jewels, the portraits set into brooches, rings, lockets, pendants, small boxes, toothpick cases, most from England, are few in number. The collection the Skiers have assembled is considered the largest of its kind, with only some 1,000 suspected to exist worldwide.
