Moll Davis at Philip's Home

Art in Isolation

Episode Two | Available Now
Studio of Peter Lely, Moll Davis at Home
Join Philip again today at 4pm live as he discusses two more 17th century works from his private collection. The first will be a portrait of the actress Moll Davis. Davis enjoyed the same pedigree and path to the Royal favour as her contemporary and rival Nell Gwynn. The present portrait derives from a three-quarter length by Sir Peter Lely which depicts her with the unguent jar of St Mary Magdalen, placing her in the guise of the reformed sinner, as well as providing a witty conceit for the display of a very decolletage. The portrait is shown here in Philip's home.
