This portrait depicts an aristocratic lady in fashionable court dress. The head may have been painted by Flemish portraitist Paul van Somer, who came to London in 1616 and became a favourite artist of King James I of England. Most of this canvas was painted by assistants. The landscape was added at a later date; the original drapery can still be seen in the background column.
