James II (1633-1701)

Description

A half length portrait, the size of life, in armour. The face is turned in three quarters to the left, the side of his nose being in shadow. The countenance is very like that of his brother Charles II.

He rests his right arm on a red drapery spread over a pedestal, holding a baton, and wears the Blue Ribbon and lesser George of the Garter, over his left shoulder. This is also assumed a copy, but of the 18th century English school.
