I've never seen that one before either! It's quite handsome!

Very interesting! A high forehead, much like Elizabeth Woodville. Hmm.

Beautiful and very different from the famous ones. I've been researching Elizabeth I's portraiture recently and there are so many of them! Also I love her use of symbolism for propaganda and to make a statement.

Claire you are right, it is beautiful and different indeed!

Does any of you know who painted it and when?

Thank you
