Join Lawrence Hendra, Head of Research, and Emma Rutherford, Portrait Miniatures Consultant, for a fascinating discussion surrounding the exceptional Tudor portrait of Mary Tichborne (b.1541) by painted by the Master of the Countess of Warwick.
Occasionally, pictures survive in such good condition that they appear almost disarmingly fresh and modern, so attuned is our eye to looking at works damaged by dirt, abrasion and neglect. The present picture is an exceptional survival from the sixteenth century, and represents one of the finest small panel portraits of the period. The portrait is firmly attributable to the artist of a number of related works from the 1560s known today as the Master of the Countess of Warwick.
