Summary

Oil painting on panel, King Edward VI (1537-1553) after Guillem Scrots (fl.1537-1553), 16thC (?), inscribed across the middle 'Ano Domine MDL/Septembris XXIX', and above 'Edwardus Dei Gratia Sextus, Rex Angliae Franciae et Hisperne. Et Aetatis Suae XIII' -1550. Formerly attributed to Studio of Scrots or possibly by William Scrots - Guillim Streetes. Son of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour. Head and shoulders, turned slightly to left, gazing at the spectator, closely cropped fair hair, black cap, worn at a slant, trimmed with jewels and a black plume of feathers, narrow white pleated collar, embroidered in black; dark grey velvet doublet worn beneath a satin-lined coat, both trimmed with embroidered bands of gold cord and jewels. Behind a warm grey background.

Provenance

In the possession of the Cockayne family, Lords Cullen of Rushton Hall, Northamptonshire. Descended to the one of the heiresses, the Hon. Elizabeth Percy (d.1883). Anonymous Sale ('from Rushton Hall'), 3rd May, 1884, lot 75, as Qilliam Strete and bought by Lord Aldenham, [n.b. as painting was recorded as owned by H. Hucks Gibbs in 1886 and 1890 (loans to exhibitions), statement that it was bought by Lord Aldenham in 1884 is incorrect or two pictures are involved in these references. [Alastair Laing suggests that if the painting was not in the sale, it may somehow have passed from G.E.Cokayne to Viceroy Gibbs, they were successive editors of The Complete Peerage]. It was in Lord Aldenham's collection in 1909 (recorded in Burlington Magazine, June 1909, p.154) and still in his collection in 1937; Lord Aldenham Sale, Sotheby's, 24 February, 1937, lot 125, bought for Lord Fairhaven. Bequeathed to the National Trust by Huttleston Rogers Broughton, 1st Lord Fairhaven (1896-1966) with the house and the rest of the contents.
