Hi,

This is a modern portrait (less than 50 years) done of a 17th subject, a portrait of Sir Walter Raleigh.

Thanks,

Wayne

Thanks for your reply Wayne. I've looked through other portraits and this doesn't look like Sir Walter Raleigh to me. I've also never seen him painted without a beard. Could you please tell me how I can ask another expert, to see if they have any other ideas? Kind regards

My guess is El Greco

Doménikos Theotokópoulos, most widely known as El Greco, was a painter, sculptor and architect of the Spanish Renaissance. The nickname "El Greco" refers both to his Greek origin and Spanish citizenship.
