Henry Pierce Bone (1779-1855) was the son of the illustrious enamelist Henry Bone and and Elizabeth Van der Meulen, a descendant of the Flemish painter Adam Frans van der Meulen. Trained by his father, he began his career as a painter of classical scenes. However, after his father died in 1833, he took up the family business and devoted the remainder of his career to miniature enamel portraits. First appointed enamel painter to Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, he later earned the honor of being the exclusive enamel painter of Queen Victoria and Albert of Saxe-Coburg. To this day, his remarkably detailed works remain highly collectible.
