Portrait of George, Prince of Denmark (1653-1708), standing three-quarter length with one hand on hip, wearing long wig, lace cravat and armour with sash. The second son of Frederick III of Denmark, he married the future Queen Anne of England in 1683. Their son, William, Duke of Gloucester, was the hope of the Stuart succession but he died in 1700, aged eleven. This plate was originally Lely's portrait of William, Prince of Orange (painted 1677 and now in the NPG), as published by Alexander Browne; Thomas Bowles (fl. 1683-1714) reissued the plate altered in imitation of the portrait of Prince George by Beckettt after Wissing (CS 76). The firm Bowles & Carver were active 1793-1832.
