Notes:

William Laud (1573-1645), Archbishop of Canterbury probably sat to van Dyck in 1635. Along with Strafford he was one of the King's most ardent and effective servants and like Strafford, he paid for his loyalty with his life. The quality of the Fitzwilliam Museum's version of this portrait was recognised by Michael Jaffé and confirmed by Sir Oliver Millar following its cleaning and restoration twenty years ago. (Text from handlist 'Portraiture from van Dyck to Reynolds'.
