Lucius Cary Viscount Falkland

Painted by an unknown artist, the famous politician and author, who was known for his reckless charge at the battle of Newbury, which was tantamount to suicide. This was probably a pre war painting, but Falkland is dressed in a slashed doublet that shows his shirt through the gaps in the cloth. He has also pulled some of his shirt through the lower part of his doublet that has been left unbuttoned. Looking closely, you can see his sword belt that follows the line of his fashionable pointed waist and the ribbon bows decorating the doublet below that. Laced falling band and matching cuffs. This picture hangs in St Johns College Cambridge.
