Maria Anna of Neuburg

Ca. 1691. Gilt-bronze.
Room 019

In this medallion and his partner (O3392) the idealised king and queen are depicted according to the conventions of painted portraits, their faces in half-profile against a plain background with a large curtain. Charles II wears armour and the emblem of the Golden Fleece. Maria Anna, his second wife whom he married by proxy in 1689, wears an ornate, low-necked bodice with a jewelled brooch and the pearl necklace that she wore during her final years in Spain. She has her hair loose, which is unusual in portraits of her.
