Portrait of a Young Lady with a Plumed Headdress by British (English) School, 1633 England, Manchester City Galleries
A three-quarter, left side, portrait of a lady in a red embroidered dress with puffed sleeves, tied with yellow ribbon, and a lace collar. She wears a plumed headdress, which is trimmed with pearls and which sits near the back of her head.
A large pendant hangs around her neck with six black droplets hanging from the main section. A matching ring is tied to her collar with a piece of ribbon, while a ring is visible on the fourth finger of her left hand. Beaded bracelets adorn her wrist. She looks straight at the viewer, her face framed by her ringlets of dark hair. There is an oval painted frame with a dark background. Her age is documented in the top corner of the painting as ‘15’. This painting was probably made to celebrate the betrothal of her and her husband, who is represented in the accompanying painting entitled ‘A Gentleman’ which is executed in an identical style.
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.
