1.11 Description A three-quarter-length portrait of Queen Anne of Denmark, the wife of King James I, at the age of about 30. The Queen is dressed in a white farthingale, with piled-up hair, adorned with a jewel and a pearl. She is wearing pearls around her neck and her bodice, and is holding a fan in her left hand. There is a chair in the background.
