The white rod of office Sackville holds in this portrait probably refers to his appointment as Lord High Steward. A similar face pattern to that used to produce this portrait was used in the depiction of the sitter in The Somerset House Conference. This painting may have been produced within the workshop of John de Critz the Elder (c. 1551/2-1642).
