RCIN 404918

Mary is depicted as Diana, the goddess of hunting; in this guise she carries a bow, wears a crescent moon and is followed by a greyhound. Her rich silk gown recalls the dresses worn by the Windsor Beauties series in the Royal Collection painted by Lely. The landscape background reminds us of the work of Titian, whom the artist admired.
