Stuart's portrayal here suggests nothing of the political situation that was about to overwhelm him and his family. He is shown as a shepherd, standing in an Arcadian landscape. The Latin motto can be translated, 'Love is stronger than I am ', and probably refers to his secret marriage, against the wishes of her parents, to Lady Katherine Howard.
