A sublime, delicate and diminutive Tudor style miniature portrait depicting Edward VI (1537-1553) in the Manner of Hans Holbein the Younger. Created c.1680 or possibly earlier.

The young auburn haired King wears an embellished red coat, an bejewelled wide brimmed court bonnet with a white plume. Oil on copper or velum.

Set within a gilt metal mount with pierced spiral cresting.

Edward VI, born in 1537, was the son of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour. Ascending to the throne of England at just nine years old, Edward's reign was marked by significant religious reforms. Despite his youth, he displayed a keen intellect and a commitment to England. He felt one of his greatest achievements was the creation of the Book of Common Prayer. Sadly, his reign was cut short by illness, and he died at the age of 15, leaving a legacy of religious change that would shape England for years to come.

Provenance from the Timothy Clowes private collection.
