The print is an early example of the widespread dissemination and influence of the Heroologia Anglica portrait of Lady Jane. Produced for a Dutch audience, this print places an inverse copy of the de Passe engraving within an elaborate border decorated with grotesque motifs. A print in the Gallery archive of Anne Boleyn, another executed queen, has an identical border. It is possible that they came from a set of forty-three portraits produced by Bouttats in 1658.
Translation of Dutch inscription: Queen of England. Publicly executed on a scaffold in the Tower of London.
