Portrait miniatures first appeared in the 1520s, at the French and English courts. In the 18th century, portrait miniatures were painted with watercolor on ivory, which had now become relatively inexpensive. Portrait miniatures were now an established genteel pastime, and often used as personal mementos or as jewelry or snuff box covers. Miniatures remained highly popular until the development of daguerreotypes and photography in the mid-19th century.  [sl] [ph:L]
