Larkin painted the portrait of Clifford in 1616, when she was 28. An amazing portrait of amazing woman! This is Lady Anne Clifford, the early feminist lived during Elizabethan. As a child she was a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I of England; she also danced in masques with Anne of Denmark, queen of King James I of England.
16th century portrait of Sophie of Mecklenburg-Güstrow, granddaughter of Frederick I of Denmark and consort of Frederick II of Denmark, Sophie was born on 4 September 1557. Her second daughter, Anne, married James I of England, and their daughter Elizabeth is the ancestress of today's British royal family.
