- The Somerset House Conference
- by unknown artist
- An early 17th Century photo opportunity,
in which the sombre participants are overshadowed by their bright
surroundings. The large window is fully glazed with tiny panes,
and the walls are hung with fine tapestries. A rich heavy carpet
covers the long table, and the men sit on high-backed x-framed
chairs, upholstered with fringed velvet and leather.
