Repro ID: Bhc4251
Title: Queen Anne of Denmark (1574 - 1619).
Description: Anne of Denmark, the cultured and extravagant wife of James I, here wears a white dress, the lower part of which is supported on a 'farthingale'. Around her neck are pearls which had belonged to Elizabeth I. We know that the portrait was painted in about 1605, because in or before 1609 the Queen gave up the piled-up hair style which we see here. Anne was enthusiastic about, architecture and the arts. Inigo Jones was appointed 'Surveyor of the King's Works' in 1615 and she commissioned him to build the Queen's House for her in 1616.
Creator: John de Critz, c.1555 - 1641
