Description: An interesting collection of eleven head and shoulder silhouette portraits by Master Hubbard (1807-1862), one of an elderly lady wearing a bonnet, 9cm x 6.5cm in ebonised reeded frame; the others of male and female sitters, the reverses variously inscribed: Edinburgh December 1822, one Edinburgh 1821, two bearing Bristol paper stamp, another bearing label inscribed 'Cut with common scissors by that singularly gifted little boy Master Hubbard without drawing or machine', another Edinburgh December 1823, Glasgow 1831, another inscribed in ink 'Cut by Master Hubbard aged 13 years with common scissors, Glasgow 1823', another Edinburgh August 1822, 11) William James Hubard was born in Shropshire but moved to the United States in 1824, where he was greatly acclaimed for his silhouette and painted portraits. He was killed in an accidental explosion while making munitions in Richmond for the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. Works by Hubard reside in the Smithsonian, amongst other institutions. (From research by Dominic Winter Auctions)
