Hans Eworth - Allegorical portrait of Sir John Luttrell


oil on panel

Courtauld Institute of Art, London

My next combination kind of reminds me of this unusual allogorical portrait of Sir John Luttrell of 1550 by Hans Eworth.

In this painting the proportions of the figures are radically different which gives it the feeling of a collage. The group of figures in the top left hand corner also seem to be in a different layer - this is because they are meant to be illustrating a vision.
