An impressive grand scale portrait of Queen Anne, when Princess Anne of Denmark (1683-1702), standing full length in an interior and wearing a plush ermine lined cape and white dress profusely decorated with gold brocade. There was a large demand for royal images during the period and this demand lead to many copies of notable works created and then copied. The current example was painted c.1800. Such was the demand for these images that artists created several versions of the same works. Painted to a very large scale and beautifully presented both in condition and its attractive frame - this is a fine example of British royal images and historically interesting.

Anne was born on 6 February 1665 in London, the second daughter of James, Duke of York, brother of Charles II. Anne and her elder sister Mary received a Protestant upbringing although their father James converted to Catholicism and remarried. In 1683 Anne married Prince George of Denmark (1653–1708). She had between 16 and 18 pregnancies but tragically only one child survived - William, Duke of Gloucester and he died aged 11 of smallpox in 1700.

Her sister Mary married William of Orange but Anne was forbidden by her father to visit her in the Netherlands. When William landed in England in 1688 to take the throne, Anne on the influence of her close friend Sarah Churchill (1650–1744) the wife of John Churchill (1650–1722), supported her sister and brother-in-law against her father James. Churchill was created Duke of Marlborough by William when he was crowned King William III and her sister Queen Mary II. Anne detested her brother-in-law, and the Churchills' influence led her briefly during William’s reign to engage in Jacobite intrigues.

Mary died in 1694 and on William’s death in 1702 Anne succeeded to the throne as Queen Anne.
Very good, lined.
