Arguably one of the most visually dynamic and complex of all Tudor portraits, Robert Peake’s portrait of Anthony Maria Browne styles a young Catholic nobleman as a devoted and loyal subject to Elizabeth I. Edward Town, Assistant Curator of Paintings and Sculpture, at the Yale Center for British Art will provide the political context for the portrait’s creation and explain the complicated symbolism of its imagery. Now on view in the fourth-floor galleries, the painting is an exciting new acquisition for the museum.
