A painting by Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens has been found in Glasgow after it was thought to have been lost for 400 years.
The portrait was considered a copy of an original depicting George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham, who was believed to have been James VI and I’s lover. It was hanging at Pollok House, a National Trust for Scotland property. The work caught the eye of Dr Bendor Grosvenor from BBC4’s Britain’s Lost Masterpieces during a visit.
After analysis and restoration the long-lost work has been authenticated and will appear in an episode of the BBC4 program on Wednesday.
