Explore the paintings

Prince Rupert (1619 - 1682) was the third son of Frederick V, Elector Palatine and Elizabeth Stuart, the 'Winter Queen', sister of Charles I. He was a dashing military leader who fought for the Royalist cause and was active both as an artist - he practised the new technique of mezzotint - and as a patron of art and science.

Its presumed pendant is a portrait of his eldest brother, 'Prince Charles Louis, Count Palatine' also in the Collection.
