Execution Scene - Mary, Queen of Scots

Execution Scene - Mary, Queen of Scots Legends and Legendary People Visual Arts World History Social Studies

This image depicts the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots.  It was created by an unknown Dutch artist, circa 1613.

We learn more about this painting from the National Galleries of Scotland:

This watercolour was made for a Dutch magistrate who compiled an album of historical prints and drawings in 1613. Not surprisingly, the costume and architecture look very Dutch, but the picture does reflect eye witness accounts of the event. Mary's clothes were burnt to prevent supporters keeping them as relics, and this scene is shown on the far left.
