An engraving after the portrait by Van Dyck of the Howards of Arundel painted about 1640. His Lordship is pointing to a large globe on which Madagascar is prominently marked, while her Ladyship holds instruments of navigation. The V&A description runs ...” Three-quarter-length, seated, double portrait. On the left is Alathea, wife of the earl of Arundel, turned and facing to the right. She is wearing countesses robes, a crown, pearls and a chain around her neck. In her right hand is a compass and an astrolabe(?) in her left. Thomas Howard, earl of Arundel, is seated on the right, turned to left and looking left toward Alathea. He is gesturing with his right hand toward a globe; the globe is focused on Madagascar and the Indian Ocean; placed on the globe is a piece of paper with a depiction of a horse and lions. To the right is a classical bust.” Thomas Howard is regarded as one of the first great art collectors in England and became patron of the renowned engraver Wenceslaus Hollar. As a royal courtier he was heavily involved in affairs of State and travelled extensively abroad, notably to Italy where his artistic collecting enthusiasm developed and where, at sixty years old, he died. Seemingly a late strike from the original plate, trimmed close but quite acceptable.
