Rowland Lockey was a painter and goldsmith. He was apprenticed to Queen Elizabeth's miniaturist and goldsmith Nicholas Hilliard for eight years and by 1600 had been made a freeman or master of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. He worked mainly as a copyist of earlier portraits to make up sets of oil paintings for the fashionable long galleries of great houses, but also signed or documented portrait miniatures.
