  • Scottish Art
This portrait of Anne,Countess of Rothes with Margaret and Mary, her two daughters, gives us a tantalising glimpse into a fine Scottish interior of the early seventeenth century. The painting is also interesting as a record of the elaborate costume and jewellery of a noble Scottish woman and her children. The girls are dressed as miniature adults, but the coral necklaces, which they both wear, were specifically for children.
