This portraitback to top

This unusual and highly accomplished double portrait of mother and son was probably painted to commemorate the restoration of honours to her son, forfeited after her husband, Thomas, 9th Baron Dacre, was executed for his part in a poaching incident in which a keeper had been killed. This portrait is signed in monogram by the painter Hans Eworth, one of the most distinguished Netherlandish artists to work in England in the mid-sixteenth century.
