Catalogue Note

This portrait relates to an important, but lost, three-quarter length portrait of Henrietta Maria by van Dyck.  None of the known variants of this composition can be attributed to the master himself, however, in addition to the present work, other high-quality versions are in the Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego and in the Bomann-Museum at Celle.1
