"Mary Queen of Scots"English School, 19th century
original oil painting on board
oil painting measures: 17 by 14 inches
framed: 24 by 21 inchesA very fine antique oil painting on board, showing the famous scene of Mary, Queen of Scots, the night before her execution. The painting is unsigned and we cannot discover who the artist was, though we have found an engraving of this subject by John Surtain (1808-1897).

Mary, Queen of Scots(8 December 1542– 8 February 1587), also known asMary StuartorMary I of Scotland, was queen regnantof Scotlandfrom 14 December 1542 to 24 July 1567 and queen consortof Francefrom 10 July 1559 to 5 December 1560.

Mary, the only surviving legitimate child of King James V of Scotland, was 6 days old when her father died and she succeeded to the throne. She spent most of her childhood in France while Scotland was ruled by regents, and in 1558, she married the Dauphin of France, Francis. He ascended the French throne as King Francis II in 1559, and Mary briefly became queen consort of France, until his death on 5 December 1560. Widowed, Mary returned to Scotland, arriving in Leithon 19 August 1561. Four years later, she married her first cousin, Henry Stuart,Lord Darnely, but their union was unhappy. In February 1567, his residence was destroyed by an explosion, and Darnley was found murdered in the garden.
James Hepburn,4th Earl of Bothwell, was generally believed to have orchestrated Darnley's death, but he was acquitted of the charge in April 1567, and the following month he married Mary. Following an uprising against the couple, Mary was imprisoned in Loch Leven Castle. On 24 July 1567, she was forced to abdicatein favour of James, her one-year-old son by Darnley. After an unsuccessful attempt to regain the throne, she fled southwards seeking the protection of her first cousin once removed, Queen Elizabeth I of England. Mary had previously claimed Elizabeth's throne as her own and was considered the legitimate sovereign of Englandby many English Catholics, including participants in a rebellion. Perceiving her as a threat, Elizabeth had her confined in a number of castles and manor houses in the interior of England. After eighteen and a half years in custody, Mary was found guilty of plotting to assassinate Elizabeth, and was subsequently executed.
This very sensitively painted portrayal of her last evening, shows her in quiet prayer and contemplation and is beautifully painted. Housed in its original gilt frame (sadly in very poor condition), the work has come from a private house in the north of England.Provenance: private collection, EnglandCathedral Fine ArtWe are fine art dealers in England and have been for three decades.
