This portraitback to top

This print records the painting by John Hayls that Pepys commissioned of his wife in February 1666. The portrait probably hung as a pendant to Pepys' own portrait by Halys shown here and the posture was designed to show Elizabeth in the role of St. Catherine. The painting was destroyed in the nineteenth century.
