The inscription, lower left, 'My Lady. The inventory of pictures at Rhenen records what may be another, earlier portrait of Mary Villiers, whom Elizabeth clearly viewed as a dear friend of the Royal Family see A. Henry FitzRoy, Duke of Richmond The match was a triumph for the Boleyn family as the Duchess was a former member of Queen Anne's household, and a staunch advocate of reform.

Many foreign brides had been mentioned for Richmond. At the age of 10, he was apprenticed to Hendrik van Balen, a successful Antwerp painter, and he must soon have come under the influence of Rubens, who after assumed undisputed leadership of art in Antwerp.

Although the relationship between Rubens and van Dyck became strained afterthere is no evidence that Rubens tried to hamper the career of the young rival. Surrey suggested that when Mary went to the king to be congratulated on her betrothal, that she pretend to be indecisive over the marriage.

Strictly speaking he should not be called Rubens's pupil, as he was an accomplished painter when he went to work for him. Out of these diverse influences he evolved new forms of portraiture which were immensely popular with the court elite and had a major impact on later artists in Britain.

The Duke of Norfolk complained of her weeping and wailing and begging for permission to go to London to work on her case.In both, the compositions and finely painted landscapes echo the work of the sixteenth-century Venetian painter Titian.
