This portrait is the only surviving signed work by the Netherlandish artist Arnold Bronckorst. He probably trained with Nicholas Hilliard, and worked both in England and at the Scottish court. The signature which can be seen running down the right-hand side of the painting reads as follows: 'AR BRONCKORST FECIT 1578'.
