Small is beautiful

An exhibition of 50 portrait miniatures from the Buccleuch Collection, including some never seen before, has been opened by the Duke of Buccleuch at his Selkirk seat, Bowhill House.

The collection - co-curated by the Duke and Dr Stephen Lloyd, former senior curator of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery - will be exhibited at Bowhill from July 1 to 31.

Included in the display are an unfinished portrait of Oliver Cromwell by Samuel Cooper and examples of the art form dating back to the 1520s.
