Portrait of a Lady (probably Mary Hungate), attributed to Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger, ca 1620 England, Royal Albert Memorial Museum
This description is from here.
This painting and an earlier portrait were given by a descendant of the Browne family of Kiddington, Oxfordshire. Considering the apparent ages of the sitters and the dates of their costume, it is thought that they represent the two wives of Sir Henry Browne (c.1562-1628). This one probably depicts the later wife, Mary Hungate, about 1620. The full-length nature of the portrait, the fine detail and naturalistic setting are consistent with paintings by Marcus Geeraerts the younger. He had found significant success as court painter for Elizabeth I and then James I, significantly influencing Tudor and Jacobean portraiture.
