The Lady Jayne/Streatham portrait is on display as part of ‘The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics’ exhibition at The Walker Art Gallery.
‘You will come face-to-face with the five Tudor monarchs – Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I – who, to this day, remain some of the most familiar figures in English history; not least because these instantly recognisable portraits have preserved their likenesses for five centuries.
Some highlight loans in the exhibition are the Westminster Tournament Roll, produced in 1511, the Roll celebrates the birth of Henry VIII’s son with Katherine Aragon, Henry, who died in infancy. This spectacular document was last on public display almost 20 years ago and never seen outside London. Another incredible loan is the Bacton Altar Cloth which new research suggests is an item from Elizabeth I’s wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of her clothing.’
