About this artwork

James VI was crowned King of Scots when he was still a baby, after the forced abdication of his mother, Mary, Queen of Scots. Before he assumed personal rule, Scotland (and the young king) were in the control of various warring factions of nobility. Still a child in this portrait, James is dressed, like a miniature adult, for hunting, with a sparrow hawk perched on his gloved left hand.
