Flemish Artist (early 17th century):
Louis XIII on Horseback

A18; oil on copper; 63 x 50 cm.

Presented by the Revd Dr Richard Rawlinson, 1752; WA1845.18.

The portrait corresponds generally to a number of paintings and prints of Louix XIII of France on a prancing horse. From the type and handling of the paint, it seems to be either by or after a Flemish painter. The appearance of the king suggests a date of about 1622.
