17th century Dutch engraving of Princess Elizabeth by noted artist and cartographer Caspar Barlaeus
This is an engraving, circa 17th century, the subject Princess Elizabeth .[Stuart, Princess Elizabeth] (a tribute, "Elisabetha Frederici Bohemiae Regis, Com. Palat. Et Elect. S.R.I. Filia Natu Maxima." appearing below the oval portrait). The work is signed Caspar Barlaeus in the plate at extreme lower right corner. Barlaeus (also known as van Baerle) was born in 1584 and died in 1648. He was a humanist, philosopher, cartographer, poet----a man of many talents who was quite known in his day. From a similar example offered on the net, I see that the subject of the print is Elisabeth, Electress Palatine and Queen of Bohemia (born Princess Elizabeth Stuart of Scotland, 1596–1662). She was the eldest daughter of James I and his Queen consort Anne of Denmark, thus sister to Charles I of England and cousin to Frederick III of Denmark. With the demise of the Stuart dynasty in 1714, to which she apparently belonged, her direct descendants, the Hanoverian rulers, succeeded to the British throne. That's a lot of royal European history. Condition: Not viewed outside the frame but appears to be in excellent condition for a piece of paper about 300 years old. There are very narrow margins inside the linen liner. Viewed with a loupe, there appears to be a touch of rubbing at far left center details but this issue is really visible only with a loupe. Wood frame is modern and shows some wear. Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS NOW IN MY SHOP.
