Double Portrait of Sir Reginald and Lady Mohun – A Marriage Portrait

Hello all!

I thought I’d show you a recent commission of a famous late Elizabethan painting. This hand painted fine art copy of Sir Reginald and Lady Mohun is one of the earliest examples of a full length double portrait in English art. The portrait was painted to celebrate the marriage of Sir Reginald Mohun to his third wife and as you can see in her hand she is holding a pink rose, a symbol of betrothal. The joint arms of Mohun  and Chudleigh in the middle of the portrait celebrates the union of these families.

Our hand painted fine art replica Portrait of Sir Reginald Mohun and his wife, Dorothy Chudleigh of Ashton, Devon. Size: 190cm x 111cm.

This oil painting of  Sir Reginald Mohun and his wife is also of great significance because it is said to be one of the earliest instances in English portraiture of showing affection between husband and wife. For example, you can see this in the way the couple’s hands are intertwined.
