Description: 1 Fine Large British Old Master Work Of Art Antique 17th Century Oil Painting Portrait King James 1st England & VI Scotland Circle Of Godfrey Kneller 1646-1723. Three quarter length front profile view portrait from the romanticised and revisionist look back at one of Englands & Scotlands great Icons. Wearing his fine costume with all the lace frills, he is clutching his sword with his left hand whilst projecting such confidence and authority power in his pose.  Presented in a magnificent gilt frame.  Oil on canvas. Historically significant portrait of the King of England, Scotland & Ireland and successor of Queen Elizabeth I.  James was the son of Mary, Queen of Scots, and a great-great-grandson of Henry VII, King of England and Lord of Ireland, and thus a potential successor to all three thrones. He succeeded to the Scottish throne at the age of thirteen months, after his mother was compelled to abdicate in his favour.
