Called inaccurately Princess Elizabeth of England, the later Queen Elizabeth of England I, at the age of three (right), at the age of five (left) and at the age of six (middle), daughter of King Henry VIII of England and Anne Boleyn, 16Th century, Elizabeth I. The fashions are of the 17Th century long after Elizabeth died. Artist unknown.
Procession portrait of Elizabeth I of England by artist Robert Peak the Elder.
I love these two works, the first for it showing the phases of Elizabeth's growth as a child, it really helped me visualize her as a child. Long and lanky even as a child. The second shows her in all her glory and it is the softer side of her during the time of her procession. It is no wonder Robert Dudley loved her so much she is so beautiful in this portrait.
