This portrait shows King James II in breastplate armour with the sash of the Order of the Garter. The treatment recalls work of the 1680s by the royal painter Sir Godfrey Kneller, but the handling is individual and represents the work of an as-yet unidentified personality most probably trained in Kneller's studio.
