Charity, traditionally shown with the children she nurtures, is dressed as a Roman matron and is presented in an austere indoor setting with a giant fluted column suggesting antique grandeur. This painting, together with 'Faith', 'Justice', 'Fortitude', 'Temperance' and 'Prudence', is from a series of the seven Virtues (Hope is missing), probably painted by a North European artist working in England.
