A touching 1637 oil sketch of two royal princesses – Elizabeth and Anne – which Van Dyck made for a group portrait of five children of Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria. It becomes all the more poignant when you realise that the little girls did not survive infancy. The picture was ArtFunded in 1996.
