Also included are several eighteenth-century French gold boxes decorated with narratives or scenes in grisaille. All are from the Museum’s permanent collection and, because of their sensitivity to light, are infrequently exhibited. Six larger paintings will be exhibited in order to consider what they may share with the miniatures and to show how they differ.
