EDITORS COMMENTS
The Armada Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I, c. 1590 captures the regal and powerful presence of one of England's most iconic monarchs. Painted in oil on panel by an unknown English artist from the 16th century, this masterpiece measures 110.5x127 cm and is currently held in a private collection. Commissioned to commemorate the historic victory over the Spanish Armada in 1588, it is believed that Sir Francis Drake may have been involved in its commissioning and subsequent ownership by his descendants until it was acquired for the nation in 2016. This portrait showcases Queen Elizabeth I as a symbol of strength and authority during her reign. Adorned with intricate lace, a majestic crown, and holding a globe representing her global influence, Queen Elizabeth I exudes confidence and power. Her pearl necklace adds elegance to her attire while she holds a fan delicately displaying her femininity amidst her royal duties. This portrait not only serves as a testament to England's triumph over adversity but also immortalizes Queen Elizabeth I's legacy as one of history's most influential female leaders. Its historical significance combined with its artistic beauty makes it an invaluable piece within the realm of Tudor portraiture.
