This early portrait of James VI is likely to have been painted when the Scottish court began to negotiate with Denmark an alliance by marriage. It is possible that this portrait was sent to the Danish court to attract a royal bride. James VI married Anne the second daughter of King Frederick of Denmark in 1589. Oil on canvas, attributed to Adrian Vanson, c.1585.
