Lady Elizabeth embroidery from Huber

Lady Elizabeth Gray
American c.1830

This beautiful silk embroidery depicts the destitute Elizabeth Gray, widow of Lord John Gray, with her sons Thomas and Richard pleading with victorious King Edward IV for the restoration of her children's lands. Her graciousness, downcast looks and mournful beauty not only gained her the conquering Kings attention, but also his heart. His infatuation was only enhanced by Elizabeth's affections for her deceased husband. Ultimately on Michaelmas day, 1464, Edward IV and Elizabeth were married.

Michaelmas Day is the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel, celebrated on September 29, traditionally the last day of the harvest season.

Silk, wool, and watercolor on silk; 28" x 34" framed.
