What is a Miniature?

Miniature art has been in existence for centuries tracing its heritage back to the illustrated manuscripts of scribes in the Far East and Europe prior to the 15th century. The current resurgence in popularity in miniature art started in 1896 in England and expanded worldwide in the late 1900s. 

Foremost in importance in contemporary miniature art is the highly skilled and painstaking techniques should be evident upon viewing the artwork. This is often described as the work should hold up well under magnification. It should draw the viewer’s eye deeper and deeper into itself with amazement at the gem-like details of the tiny treasure.
