John Belasyse

Painted by Gilbert Jackson, sometime between 1640 and 41 we think. The royalist officer is painted in a splendidly fashionable doublet and breeches, falling band that is almost completely cutwork, two layers of the same on his cuffs and a nice pair of soft boots with matching boot hose. The sword he is holding will hang from the matching embroidered baldrick when he puts it over his shoulder.
