The portrait of Elizabeth that can be seen at first glance was virtually all painted in the eighteenth century. However, recent technical analysis has revealed that this image was painted over the top of an early seventeenth-century portrait. Dendrochronology (tree-ring dating) indicates that the wood used for the panel was felled some time after 1604, just after the queen's death. Therefore the original portrait was posthumous, based on a pattern developed during Elizabeth's lifetime.
Queen Elizabeth I - This is a portrait not often seen. The red velvet gown and cape would have been fabulously expensive in Elizabeth's time, a vivid reminder to all who saw this portrait of her status and importance.
