Portrait of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland. Resolute expression. Stands poised with left hand firmly on table. Dress enhanced by stiff lace collar, quilted fabric across shoulders, frilly lace cuffs. She is wearing a dark geometric necklace, cross around neck, drop earrings and cross (rosary?) suspended from her waist. A diaphanous fabric fits snugly on her head and flows behind her.
