James Francis Edward Stuart, 'The Old Pretender' (1688-1766) , as Prince of Wales
attributed to Jacques van Schuppen (Paris 1670 Vienna 1751).
Oil painting on canvas, James Francis Edward Stuart, 'The Old Pretender' (1688-1766), as Prince of Wales, attributed to Jacques van Schuppen (Paris 1670 Vienna 1751), 1690-1700. A full-length portrait in black and gilt armour and blue robe; Prince James (1688-1766) was the son of SIZ.P.17 and SIZ.P.18. It was the birth of James, raising the spectre of a Catholic dynasty in Britain, that led to the expulsion of James II. Shown here alla romana (ie in classical armour), the portrait signalled the princes breeching in 1695. It was evidently not done from fresh sittings, since the face-mask is still essentially that of Largillierres portrait of the naked boy in 1691 (Scottish National Portrait Gallery). That portrait, or another using the same face-mask, was engraved by Pierre van Schuppen in 1692. It seems most likely that this picture is by his son, who had also been Largillierres pupil.
