The photos on this page come from a collection held by the family of  Horatio Ross.

Can you help by identifying any of the people in the photos, or the locations, or the dates when the photos may have been taken or the photographer?   If you can, please email me.  

Thank you.

The Ross Family  -  Miniature Portraits

Thank you to Ian Hamer who sent me an email about miniature portraits of the Ross family.

Ian wrote:

Mrs Hercules Ross

"I recently purchased a pastel portrait of a lady wearing the fashions of circa 1795. I bought the pastel purely for its decorative appeal, as a gift for my mother.   On the reverse is inscribed the following:

“Mrs Hercules Ross of Rossie, from a miniature”

George Engleheart

Miniature Painter

"My pastel is possibly a copy of the miniature by George Engleheart, either executed at the time the miniature was painted, or copied at a later date circa 1900.  However, it doesn’t look to be in the usual style of Engleheart; so it could be copied from a miniature painted by another artist.

George Engleheart (1750-1829) is very well known, and is regarded as one of the very best artists of portrait miniatures. He painted thousands of miniatures during his lifetime, and there is a biography of him to be found on the Victoria and Albert Museum website."

Hercules Ross's Children

"I also went to the websites of the major auction houses, and there found portrait miniatures of two of Hercules Ross’s children.

One was of Harriet Ross, daughter of Hercules Ross. It is attributed to artist James Holmes. I found it on the Bonhams website - their portrait miniatures sale on 28 June 2005, Lot 191.

The other was of Horatio Ross, son of Hercules Ross. It was painted by artist James Holmes circa 1830.  Again, I found it on the Bonhams website - their portrait miniatures sale on 23 November 2005, Lot 171."
