        Queen Elizabeth I , c.1600

        English School, (16th century). Medium: oil on panel. Date: c.1600. Elizabeth I (1533-1603) Queen of England. Known as 'The Coronation Portrait', this painting depicts the Queen crowned, wearing the cloth of gold which she wore at her coronation on 15th January 1559, which had previously been worn by Mary I. She is holding the orb and sceptre, symbols of her authority. The portrait appears to have been painted in about 1600, and is probably a copy of a lost original of c.1559. Provenance: National Portrait Gallery, London, UK.
