This talk will analyze the visual representation of Queenship at the courts of Philip III (1598–1621) and Philip IV (1621–1665). Were these portraits mere companions of the king’s effigies? Which elements, if any, distinguish them from other European courts? This talk will consider the role of portraiture in the configuration and performance of the queen consort’s role.
