Footnotes

  • Algernon was created Baron Percy in 1626 and succeeded his father as Earl in 1632. In 1638, Charles I made him Lord High Admiral of England and in 1639 gave him command of the expedition against Scotland, which he was forced to relinquish because of illness. Disagreeing with the king's policy, he gradually moved over to the parliamentary party. His support gave Parliament an important advantage, for it thus gained control of most of the fleet. Northumberland, a leader of the peace party, twice engaged in unsuccessful negotiations with Charles on behalf of Parliament, opposed the king's trial, and was given custody of the king's younger children. He took no active part in affairs under the Commonwealth or after the Restoration, although he held several offices after 1660.
    Although apparently based on a van Dyck portrait it has not been possible to identify the exact image and it is possible that the original oil painting is now lost. There are three later portraits of the Earl by van Dyck, one at Petworth House (of the Earl and his family) and two at Alnwick Castle, Northumberland.
    The present lot is similar in pose to the intermittent self-portraits of van Dyck, but the artist is unlikely to be the subject of the portrait as he is always shown with his hair swept away from his face.
