We only know the first name of the young girl in this portrait, but her dress and nosegay suggest this miniature may have been painted on the occasion of a family celebration. If so, then her expression suggests that she did not enjoy the event. Grace Murray signed this piece with a stylized monogram. Many American and English artists designed such “trademarks” as instantly recognizable signatures.
