J.L. Baker aged 3 Mrs. Thos. Leaming
Full-length portrait silhouette of a young girl at age 3, identified as "J.L. Baker", possibly Josephine Lea Baker, facing left. She wears a hat and a coat or wide dress. Possibly cut by Mrs. Thomas Leaming.
Cutting portraits, generally in profile, from black card became popular in the mid-18th century, though the term silhouette was seldom used until the early decades of the 19th century, and the tradition has continued under this name into the 21st century.
