Anne of Denmark, the cultured and extravagant wife of James I, here wears a white dress, the lower part of which is supported on a 'farthingale'. Around her neck are the pearls which had belonged to Elizabeth I. We know that the portrait was painted in about 1605, because in or before 1609 the Queen gave up the piled up hair style which we see here. Anne was enthusiastic about, architecture and the arts.
