DESCRIPTION
three-quarter length, standing, wearing a brown velvet dress with delicate lace trimmings
inscribed l.l.: ÆTATIS SVÆ. 10 / '1627
oil on canvas
CATALOGUE NOTE
The sitter is portrayed here in a beautifully decorated and exquisitely detailed gown of brown voided velvet, watered silk and delicate lace trimmed with silver embroidery and pendant sequins. The sleeves are formed from panels of green silk in strip form to reveal the inner white chemise and the cuffs and collar. These are edged with goffered lawn in delicate lace. She was the only daughter and heir of William Bassett of Blore and his wife Judith, daughter of Sir Thomas Austin of Oxley, Staffordshire. She married Henry Howard, third son of Thomas, first Earl of Suffolk with whom she had a daughter Elizabeth, who married Sir John Harper. Following his death in 1818 she married secondly William Cavendish (1592-1676), first Duke of Newcastle later Baron Cavendish of Bolsover. Elizabeth brought with her a generous annual income and dowry which would have been a welcome contribution to the extravagant Duke's debts. Desperate for a significant role at Court the Duke nearly bankrupted his estate several times due to the lavish entertainment provided for the king during his visits to their home Welbeck Abbey. The Duke was finally rewarded in 1638 by being made governor of the Prince of Wales and appointed to the Privy Council. Elizabeth bore him several children and died in 1643. At this date her husband, an active Royalist, was fighting to regain Royalist control of York. However, Newcastle is perhaps best known today for his admirable equestrian skills. He established a riding school during his exile in Antwerp (1648-1660) which became famous throughout Europe and published the leading treatise on horsemanship of the day entitled La Methode nouvelle et Invention extraordinire de dresser les chevaux.
George Geldorp came to England from Antwerp in 1623 where he became well known in Royalist circles in which he would have made the acquaintance of the Duke and Duchess of Newcastle. His full length portraits of the second Earl of Salisbury and his wife still hang in Hatfield House and that of the Earl of Totness in the National Portrait Gallery, London. After the Restoration he became keeper of the King's Pictures, a post that was most likely an official front for his role as a political negotiator for Charles II.

CATALOGUE NOTE

This portrait formed part of the famous group of portraits of
'The Vere Captains' which hung at Raynham Hall, many of which were
exhibited in 1890. Horace, Lord Vere of Tilbury (1565-1635) was the
youngest of Geoffrey Vere, fourth son of John de Vere, fifteenth
Earl of Oxford. He had a distinguished military career and served
at the battle of Nieuport in 1600 and at the siege of Ostend. On
25th July 1625 he was raised to the peerage by Charles I as Baron
Vere of Tilbury. After 1632 he retired to his home in Clapton and
it was probably at this time that he collected the series of
portraits of some of his principal officers. The portraits were
passed through the family via his daughter, Mary who married
Horatio, 1st Viscount Townshend.
