PAUL VAN SOMER (C. 1576-1621)

Anne of Denmark (1574-1619) and a Groom

Signed and dated 1617

RCIN 405887

Anne of Denmark is shown alongside her horse and hounds ready for the hunt with Oatlands Palace and park in the distance. Clothes worn for hunting and riding during the Tudor and Stuart period were often specially constructed, usually along the lines of fashionable clothing but frequently in different colours and of more hard-wearing fabrics. Green was an enduringly popular colour for such clothes.
