Abstract :
Prompted by the recent discovery of a portrait of Sir William Stewart of Grandtully, painted by De Colone as early as 1613 (art market), discusses the context of his work in the court circles of James VI of Scotland, and in relation to the history of the visual arts in Scotland. The identity of De Colone, whose work has often been attributed to his Scottish contemporary George Jamesone, is supported by documentary evidence which also sheds light on his movements between Scotland, London, and the Low Countries. Further documentary evidence records payments to De Colone from Lord Winton whose portrait he painted. The painter's essentially Anglo-Netherlandish style may have been passed on from his father Adrian Vanson, painter to the young king. Concludes by reflecting on the background to the Stewart commission. ;
