ISAAC OLIVER (C. 1565-1617)

Nymphs and Satyrs


RCIN 913528

Although Isaac Oliver is known chiefly for his portrait miniatures, a number of carefully finished drawings survive. The eroticism of this drawing is unusual for the artist and indeed for British art at this time. Oliver was a member of the household of Anne of Denmark, consort of King James VI & I, but this work is not documented in the Royal Collection until the reign of her grandson, James VII & II.

    The income from your ticket contributes directly to The Royal Collection Trust, a registered charity. The aims of The Royal Collection Trust are the care and conservation of the Royal Collection, and the promotion of access and enjoyment through exhibitions, publications, loans and educational activities.
