1585 The "Welbeck," "Wanstead," or "Peace" portrait by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder
This 1585 allegorical portrait by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder is one of the first portraits of Queen Elizabeth of England that I saw.
The Luminarium calls this the Welbeck or Wanstead portrait. Marileecody.com calls this the Peace portrait. All attribute it to Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder. Marileecody's note is good: "In this portrait, the queen is the harbinger of peace. She holds an olive branch in her left hand and a sheathed sword lies at her feet. She is possibly wearing the same headdress, collar and girdle from the 'Ermine Portrait' (the next image - gogm). Also, both gowns are 'Polish style' with froggings.
From the date, we can assume the symbolism refers to the turbulent situation in the Netherlands.
I have read that this is the only definitively identified painting by Gheeraerts the Elder; it is certainly his only surviving oil portrait. I have named this portrait 'The Peace Portrait' for obvious reasons, but there is no widely-accepted title."
