Restoration

Mary Tudor, Queen of England, Second Wife of Philip II

María Antonia López Asiaín, Museo del Prado restorer, comments on the restoration process of the painting "Mary Tudor, Queen of England, Second Wife of Philip II" (1554) by Anthonis Mor.

Mor represented Mary Tudor in a tense and somewhat rigid pose. He did not improve her rather plain features in line with the decorum appropriate to her rank3 but nonetheless endowed her with a majestic air that tones down her plainness.With his minutely detailed brushwork and the richness of his colouring (in imitation of Holbein) the artist succeeded in expressing her strength of character in the face of adversity.
