ON THE PORTRAIT OF ‘LADY ANNE PENRUDDOCKE’ IN A PRIVATE LONDON COLLECTION


One of the challenges for any art historian working in Tudor England is portrait identity. It is nature to want a name to go with a face (and sometimes a name can increase value markedly), but we must be careful when accepting traditional identities and, as much as we are able, challenge the identity of sitters to be sure that what has always been said about the identity of a sitter is actually true. In this finding I share part of my 2010 research on the alleged portrait of Lady Anne Penruddocke (1557) by Eworth. As you will see, the answers are a bit intriguing. - HW 13Feb2021
