Henry Rich, Earl of Holland

Painted by an artist of the English School, this painting hangs in the Captain Cristie Crawford Collection. The Earl in a sumptuous braided white silk doublet with slashed sleeves, braided red breeches and a matching decorated buffcoat. High heeled boots, embroidered gloves and a polished back and breastplate. This is the epitome of a fashionable man of the 1640s
