Richard Baxter

Engraved in 1652 by an unknown artist at age 35, the independent cleric Richard Baxter had taken part in the war as Edmund Whalley’s regimental chaplain for a while until ill health forced him to step down. Baxter wears a segmented daycap with lace or cutwork edging, a doublet and off the shoulder cloak. He also has a plain band with decorative bandstrings and matching cuffs.
