This masterpiece of early English portraiture was painted only months after the death of Elizabeth I in March 1603, when Elizabeth’s father, James VI of Scotland, succeeded to the English throne. It represents an unprecedented development in British royal portraiture for, along with its companion portrait of her brother Henry Frederick out hunting (Metropolitan Museum, New York), it is the first time royalty are depicted ‘en plein air’.
